Indian Recipes for Diabetics Part 2

Hey Folks,

Awesome post below on one “Indian Style Omelette”  written by SimpleIndianRecipes . I found this on and I’m reprinting the whole thing here for your convenience.

Omelette is made by pan with beaten eggs that is spread like a pancake and pan fried. In India, omelettes are made for unexpected guests or when one is short of time. It is so simple to put together. I have tasted so many varieties of omelette in different places including the cheesy omelette, fluffy omelette, masala omelette, vegetable omelette etc. Today I will be sharing the recipe for the classic Indian style omelette. It is an old style recipe that has been followed for years.
Another famous type of omelette in India is the Masala Omelette. I have given the recipe of that also below. These omelettes are served as a simple breakfast as such or with some toasted bread. They also make a good side dish for rice or chapatti.

Preparation time - 5 minutes 
Cooking time - 2 minutes 
Serves - 2

Ingredients (for simple everyday omelette)

·         Eggs – 2
·         Onion – 1 or 6 shallot onions (finely chopped)
·         Green Chili – 1 (finely chopped)
·         Salt – to taste

Ingredients (for spicy masala omelette)

·         Eggs – 2
·         Onion – 1 or 6 shallot onions (finely chopped)
·         Green Chili – 1 (finely chopped)
·         Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) – 1 tbsp (finely chopped)
·         Red Chili Powder – 1/4 tsp
·         Cumin Powder – ¼ tsp
·         Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
·         Pepper Powder – ¼ tsp
·         Salt – to taste
·         Vegetables – ¼ cup (finely chopped tomato, capsicum, carrot, mushroom etc)


1.     Whether you prefer to make the simple omelette or the spicy masala omelette, the recipe is the same as below.
2.     Break the eggs into a mixing bowl and add all the remaining ingredients to it.
3.     Beat it well with a fork or a egg beater.

4.     Heat a skillet or a frying pan over medium low heat. Add 1-2 tsp of oil and gently pour the egg mixture.
5.     Carefully spread the egg mixture in a circular shape and spread the onion uniformly.

6.     Let it cook for a minute on the first side before flipping it. The egg will no longer be runny.
7.     Cook the other side for about 30 seconds.

Serving Suggestions

·         It is usually served by itself for breakfast. It goes well with some tomato ketchup or green chutney.
·         It is also served with some toasted bread to make a quick sandwich. These bread omelettes are very popular railway station food in India.
·         They can be served with rice or used to make omelette curry, the recipe of which I will share soon.
