Indian Omelette

Omelette is part of every cuisine; French makes their own version and so do Greek, Italy, Japan, Iran who has their own version of omelette. I grew up eating Indian version of omelette which has little spices, but full of veggies and eggs. Do you know there are street vendors who sells only omelette to make a living. We love to have omelette at any time of the day, and not only as breakfast dish, but also as brunch or side accompany to lunch or dinner. For making this Indian omelette I used mainly egg white and 2 whole eggs along with veggies, spices like chili powder, turmeric and green chili and pepper.
When Safest Choice Eggs wanted me to create an egg based recipe, I thought of trying their eggs for my favorite omelette dish as it is an everyday dish in my house. I knew that a combination of some veggies and spices would make Safest Choice Egg into a delicious meal. As my 2 year old is happy egg eater, he loves to eat scrambled eggs and omelette; he is ardent fan of anything with eggs. Whereas my 5 year old daughter is cookie and cupcake lover who loves to eat cookie batter as well as cupcake batter, and is fond of licking the remains in the bowl while I am baking a cookie or cupcakes. I always afraid of her eating raw eggs because of salmonella fear. Now I am happy that I found #Safest Choice Eggs, and as they are pasteurized eggs, I can continue let her eating cookie or cake batter containing these eggs.
As most eggs in the grocery stores are unpasteurized, this Safest Choice Eggs goes through an all-natural egg pasteurization process which eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs from the very start. Using Safest Choice egg gives you peace of mind. So go head, if you are fan of sunny side up egg for breakfast or ceaser salad fan use these safest choice eggs you will be fear of free. The next thing I am going to make is custard based ice cream with Safest Choice Eggs, as my kiddos are ice cream lovers too.
Also another important thing is that taste, I found that pasteurization process doesn’t affect the taste and nutrition of the eggs. Everything I tried with Safest Choice Egg taste similar to the eggs that didn’t go through pasteurization process. May be it has more flavor with less eggy smell. In fact, Safest Choice Eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the nation’s largest organization of professional chefs, the American Culinary Federation (ACF).
Since this Indian omelette is very versatile, you can add any veggies; I used onion, green onion, tomato, green chili and spices. First lightly beat eggs with salt, pepper, red chili powder and turmeric and then add veggies, green chilies and tomato. Mix everything well and cook it in a skillet with 3 teaspoon of oil. Flip once to make sure uniform cooking. You can also add some gram masala if you want.

As it has good dose of veggies, and also the choice of adding your favorite choice veggies and healthy eggs, it would be a healthy recipe. Give it a try.

    I love omelettes, and I didn’t know your recipe which is very tempting. In Spain we’ll have the Spanish omelette and is delicious. You remind me that I don’t have it in my site, but I published a recipe using the oven and the microwaves. The original recipe is frying the potatoes with olive oil and cooking the omelette in a pan as you’ve done. Hope you like it.

    Now that is a hardy breakfast! Your omelet looks delicious and is making me hungry. I definitely understand the benefits of pasteurized eggs, especially for those of us who love cookie dough, :), but I would be hard pressed to give up the fresh, free range, organic eggs that I get from a friend in the valley. :). Good post Swathi.
