Masala Omelette

Packed full of protein and cheaper than...a really cheap thing, omelettes are pretty damn good. This recipe was shown to me by Mrigank, an international student from India. It zings up a normal omelette with tastebud tingling spices and rich Indian flavours. Apparently it's a hit on the campuses of Calcutta.

Crack the eggs into a big bowl and add all the ingredients.


whisk together

Give everything a good whisk

Grind a bit of salt and pepper in there


Warm up a drop of oil in a frying pan (turning the heat up to high) and once really hot (so it's a little smokey), pour all the liquid into the pan.


let it set

Leave the mixture to slowly bubble away and start to set. It won't take too long, so keep your eye on it.



Once the omelette appears to have set (try shaking the pan a little-if the whole thing moves and has lifted from the bottom of the pan, it's set) get a fork and flip the omelette over. Cook the other side for about a minute, then flip back.



Shuffle it from the pan onto a plate and eat immediately.
