Indian Coriander and Chilli Omelette : LCHF

If you're a fan of Indian food, why not try this omelette idea! It could be for breakfast, lunch, tea or supper! It uses a mix of green chilli, garlic clove, coriander and mustard seeds - plus a few other ingredients. Have a look and see what you think! Does it stir your taste buds!

Serves Two
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 small red onion, halved then sliced into very thin slivers
1 plump green chilli, seeds left in (or remove some seeds for a milder taste), finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped or grated
1/4 tsp. yellow or black mustard seeds
1 medium tomato, chopped
4 large eggs
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp coriander powder
3 tbsp. roughly chopped coriander

1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan (with about a 23cm base). Tip in the onion and chilli and fry for 3-4 minutes until the onion is just starting to soften. Next stir in the garlic, mustard seeds and the tomato and fry a minute or two longer.
2. Beat the eggs in a bowl and stir in the milk, coriander powder and fresh coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Preheat the grill to high.

3. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, tipping the pan to let the raw mixture flow to the edges as it starts to set. When the eggs are set underneath and the base is golden, transfer the pan to the grill and cook for a couple of minutes until the top is just starting to set and look puffy. Remove, and serve cut in wedges.

Looks good. I'm always looking for different ways to make an omelette. Eggs are 0 points in WW so an omelette is a very low point meal.

Yum. Though, while I love coriander seeds, I do not like the leaves and would leave them out.

Angie said...

Jan - we love Indian food, so we will definitely give this a try. Have a wonderful week.

I imagine it would probably be a bit too spicy for my taste.

an Indian omelette that would be interesting.

Iris Flavia said...

This sounds yummy, though I only know mustard seeds used in pickled eggs. As in just giving the taste, but you don´t "chew" them. Interesting!
