Omelet / Omelette / Muttai adai.
Just a very simple egg omelet. This is my mom's method. I love to make it with coconut oil only.As its flavor will fill the entire house with grace.
This oil is my secret ingredient for a successful omelet. But nowadays my health conscious brain dictates me to use olive oil instead:( Still the omelet stays good.
In my dad's house we prefer to have it with fish curry and plain steamed rice.
Egg - 1
Red onion (finely chopped) - 2 tbsp
green chilli (finely chopped)- 1
Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
coconut oil - 1 tbsp (any oil)
salt- 1/8 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Take a bowl and fork.
Break and pour the egg in to the bowl.
Chop the onion and green chilly very finely.
Add salt and cumin seeds to the egg and beat well.
Now add the chopped onion and chilly. Beat till the egg doubles its volume:)
Heat a tbsp of coconut oil in a pancake pan / dosa tawa / chapathi tawa . (I keep the omelet pan as separate and donot use it for other cooking. As it will emit an unwanted smell while cooking other recipes).
Pour the well beaten egg on the pan.
Reduce heat. Flip the omelet. Be more attentive, so that the omelet do not get charred.
Take it out.
Place on a serving saucer. sprinkle some freshly ground pepper over the omelet.
Egg omelet is ready !
Serve hot either as breakfast or as side dish.
My 'packi anna - periyamma' and 'cook - Gnanamani' call it as Muttai adai in pure Tamil.
