Malabar Egg Omelette Curry

I have already posted My MIL’s signature recipe – Egg omelette gravy long time back. The one which I am posting today is from “50 great curries of India” and it is similar to the gravy what I have already posted but it doesn’t use tamarind, ginger and garlic.  Since both the preparations are almost same, I gave a try last weekend. Even though the preparation for both the recipes look alike, I find a major difference in taste. 

The sharpness from garam masala is leading in this gravy which is not present in my gravy. Also, the gravy is very spicy and thick and look like the omelettes are coated with spicy masala. Just give a try!

Basic Information:
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4


For Omelette:

Eggs – 3 nos
Onion – 1 small no., finely chopped
Green chilli – 2 nos., finely chopped

Coriander leaves – 1 tablespoon
Black pepper powder – 1/8 teaspoon
Salt – to taste
Oil – 3 teaspoons

For Masala:

Red chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder – 2 teaspoons
Cumin seeds – 1/2 teaspoon
Fennel seeds – 1/2 teaspoon
Fresh coconut – 2 to 3 tablespoons
Garam masala – 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
Water – 3 tablespoons

For Curry:

Oil – 2 tablespoons

Onion – 2 nos., medium size, finely sliced 
Tomato – 2 nos., medium size, cubed

For Omelette:

1) Break the eggs in a small sized bowl. Beat well till it reaches fluffy.
2) Add finely chopped onion, green chilli, black pepper powder and salt. Beat again till everything mix well.

3) Use a non- stick tawa / pan for making omelette. Heat it in a slow flame. Smear it with oil and pour the omelette mixture to the pan. Drizzle some oil over it.

4) Once the omelette started cooking, carefully turn to other side, to cook other side.
5) Once done, using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the omelette into 1 inch stripes as shown in the below picture.

For Masala:

2) Add 3 tablespoon of water to it and blend it to a smooth paste. Set aside.

For Gravy:

1) Take wide pan or kadai. Heat oil in it.
2) Add onion and fry till it becomes brown and soft.

3) Reduce the flame to medium and add ground masala. Use 1/4 cup of water to rinse the jar and pour into the pan. Stir continuously to avoid burning. Cook for 3 minutes.
4) Add chopped tomato and green chillies. Fry till the tomatoes mashes well. 

5) Add 1 to 2 cups of water and salt to taste. Mix well.
