  • Yield:Serves 2
  • Active time: 10 minutes
  • Total time:10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2-3 small green chillis (such as Thai bird chilies) slit lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped tomato
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided.

Directions

  1. 1.

    Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt. Add chili powder, ciilantro, chilies, onion, and tomato. Whisk until aerated and frothy, about 2 minutes.

  2. 2.

    Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a heavy-bottomed non-stick 10-inch skillet, over medium heat until shimmering. Gently pour in half the omelette mixture in and fry over medium heat until the bottom is set and golden brown, about 1 minute. Flip over gently and fry until second side is golden brown, about a minute longer. Slide onto a plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and egg mixture. Serve immediately.
