Golden Brown Masala Omelet

If you can lay your hands on a DVD of Julia Child, in one of her episodes, she makes about 5 omelets or so per minute, or even more, its worth watching...I have seen most of her episodes when she used to air on Boston Channel many many years ago, and its a wonder to watch her.


2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon  chopped jalapeno OPTIONAL
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder OPTIONAL
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 tablespoon  finely chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon butter



In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients and beat the mixture using a whisk.
Melt butter in a non-stick pan and spread the butter throughout the pan. This should be done over medium heat.
Pour the egg mixture and spread evenly, cook on medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes. When you think that the base is firm enough to flip, then using a spatula, gently pick up the omelet and quickly flip to cook the other side. If the omelette is not holding itself when you lift it, it needs to cook more.
Cook for a couple of minutes on the other side and serve.
