Omelette is an egg preparation which has a lot many variations and here we have got you the Indian style vegetable omelette which is famously known as “Masala omelette”. Masala omelette is also famously sold on Indian streets and every vendor has his own style and version of making it.

Indian style masala omelette is an all-time favourite breakfast dish in India, is jazzed up with tangy tomatoes, crunchy onions, peppy spice powders and other ingredients to make it mouth-watering. This delicious and satiating treat is sure to kick-start your day in a very enjoyable way.

masala omelette can be prepared in a jiffy and it is made using the most basic ingredients which I bet are available in every Indian household pantry, even if it is not well maintained.

Eggs are rich source of protein which make our masala omelette protein rich and if you wish to make it heathier, chuck out the yolk and only use egg white to prepare masala omelette.

Masala omelette is my go recipe for quick breakfast or evening snack as it can prepared under 10 minutes and is supremely delicious. Serve it slices of toasted bread to make it the perfect breakfast recipe, along with a hot cup of Masala Chai. I also, rolled it under chapatti and relish it.

To make Indian style masala omelette we have whipped eggs with onions, tomatoes, green chillies, coriander leaves and Indian spices that include turmeric and red chilli powder. Once, the ingredients are mixed well, we have poured half of the prepared egg mixture in a broad non-stick pan and cook masala omelette until brown from both the sides.

Also, we would suggest you to use free-range eggs as they are rich in omega 3, protein and vitamin. Also, you can add chaat masala or pav bhaji masala to perk up the taste of masala omelette. Some people also add milk to the egg mixture which makes the Indian style masala omelette soft and fluffy, so if you wish to even you can add that procedure.

Serve with toasted bread slices and a glass of Cold Cocoa Milkshake or Chickoo and Nut Milkshake.
