Special egg omelette


  • Egg - 1 (slightly beaten)
  • Onions - 1 medium size (chopped)
  • Sambhar or chilly powder - 1/2 tsp or adjust
  • Curry leaves - few (chopped)
  • Garlic - 2 (crushed & chopped)
  • Channa dal - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil as required


  • Heat oil in the pan & fry channa dal till it turns golden brown in color.
  • Then add garlic & curry leaves fry for few seconds.
  • Now add the onions & fry well until the quantity reduces to 1/2.
  • Add salt & sambhar powder.
  • When you see the sides of the onions getting darker, reduce to flame to low-medium.
  • Gather the onions in the center of the pan & evenly spread it like a layer without much gap between the onions.
  • Now slowly pour the beaten egg on top of the onions & cover the onions completely.
  • Drizzle some oil. Adjust salt.
  • Flip the omelet & cook both the sides.

Tips for the recipe - It is good to use non stick tawah for this recipe. Do not let the onion mixture to get stuck on the pan, so that it becomes easy to flip the omelet.
