Ginger: 1” piece
Green Chilli: 3
Garlic pods: 4
Curry leaves: few
Method of Preparation
In a blender add shallots, ginger, garlic, green chilli and curry leaves.
Blend this to a smooth paste.
Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan and add the blended mix and lower the flame and stir and cook for about 1-2minutes. (This step is not compulsory but it add some taste to the omelet)
In a bowl take the egg and add salt to it and beat the egg with an electric beater for 2-3 minutes or till it becomes fluffy. Then add in the above sautéed mix to the beaten egg and beat again for a minute. (This step is important)
Heat 2tbsp oil in a non stick pan, Add the egg mix to it and rotate the pan so that it is spread evenly and put in very low flame and close with an air tight lid.
Open after 2-3 minutes and flip and cook in low flame for another 1-2minutes and switch off the flame.
Note: The secret lies in beating the egg with an electric beater. If you have a small non stick pan, try in a small pan so that you get a thick omelet which resembles savory cake. If using a small pan increase the cooking time accordingly.
