Omelette Curry | Bengali Style Omlette'r Jhol


During my schooldays there was a very popular TV and radio jingle in Hindi called “Sunday ho ya Monday Roz khaye Ande” (Sunday or Monday have an egg everyday). The crux of the jingle is that there are a wide varieties of way to prepare and have eggs. In my household curry forms an integral part of a number of meals and since egg provides nutritional value,last week decided to prepare this all-weather time tasted recipe which could be had with rice. Moreover the preparation is not too difficult and as you could see for yourself, it could give other curries a run for their money in taste. The highlight of this curry is Roasted Bellpepper flavour ! 

Ingredients:
2 Eggs
1 Onion
1/2 cup Green peas
2 medium sized Tomatoes, ground to paste
1 small Capsicum
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Garlic paste
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala  ( In Bengali household 'gorom moshla' means combination of green Cardamom +Cinnamon +Cloves and the ratio is 2:2:2)
Salt to taste
Dry coconut /Khopra shredded for garnishing

Method:
Start with omelettes first, take some minced onions, green chillies and beat the eggs. Season it with salt and pepper powder. Prepare 2 omelettes and fold them half. Cut each omelette  into 2-3 pieces. Keep aside. 
Take out the top portion of the peppers, cut them in two halves and remove the seeds and skin. Place the baking sheet on top of the Aluminum foil and face the skin side on top. Let it broil for 20 minutes till they are blackened. Flip it over and broil for next 10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and place them in a Ziploc bag. After 10 more minutes peel off the skin of the pepper halves. Now in a coffee blender make a paste of this and keep aside.



In a pan or Kadai heat 2 tbsp oil or ghee. Fry garam masala and sliced onions, ginger and garlic paste and fry till golden. Add tomato paste into the pan and keep stirring for 2-3 mins more. Add all the spices {I generally take a small bowl, add 2 tsp water in it alsong with dry powders, that way the spices will never burn } and continue frying till oil comes to the surface. Throw in some green peas and salt to taste. Mix in the capsicum paste and add 2 cups of hot water. Bring the gravy to the boil after that add the omelettes. Reduce heat and cook the gravy for another 10 mins or till the gravy is thickened. Be careful that the omelettes should not break. Garnish with grated coconut and serve hot with rice.

  14. Hi Deepa, kemon acho ? Omelette curry is one of my favorite as well...one of my friend also likes to add in bell peppers in the gravy for non-veg preparations like a paste with onion+garlic+ginger..That gives a nice aroma and plus point is, it's hidden , so kids can't complain of that either..Roasted bell pepper will definitely going to add more flavours to the curry...hugs and smiles
