Kerala style omelettes

Omlette - ആമ്പ്ലൈറ്റ്

This stuff is the perfect breakfast, very good with a typical rice meal and even works well in a sandwich. Its also the most commonly ordered item at bars coz its perfect with a chilled beer.

You need:

Shallots or red onions – diced

Curry leaves – a few, chopped very thin

Tomatoes – diced and de-seeded

Green chillies – a few, finely chopped

Shredded coconut – a couple of spoons

Salt and pepper

Method: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, heat a seasoned frying pan or skillet, add some oil and when the oil is hot pour in the egg mixture. Turn down the heat after a minute and then when one side has browned lightly, flip over and turn off the gas. Best served with a glass of chilled beer :P

      Since you have great weather there I suggest you try to get a stem of the curry leaf plant and plant it in your garden. They grow very well and fast.

      To get them fluffy you have to whisk the mixture with a fork till it becomes frothy. Some people like to add a little water or milk but I didnt this time. The coconut gives a nice flavor to the egg when its fried.
