Desi Style Omelet

This flavorful Desi Style Omelet adds an extra kick to your morning! If you don’t have a roti, try rolling the cooked omelet into a whole wheat tortilla.

Desi Style Omelet

Prep: 10 min | Cook: 5 min | Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/2 cup spinach, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 small red bell pepper, diced small
  • 1/4 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green chile, cut into slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower oil


  1. Cut and prepare the vegetables – spinach, pepper, onion, chile – and have the spices on hand – curry powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix these ingredients in a bowl to ensure the spices and seasonings stick to the vegetables.
  2. Crack 2 eggs into the vegetable mixture and whisk well.
  3. Heat the oil in a small pan on low heat and swirl to coat.
  4. Pour the egg-veggie mixture into the pan and use a spatula to spread the vegetables evenly.
  5. Cook over low heat to achieve a beautiful golden and thick omelet. Once the surface of the egg begins to dry, flip the omelet.
  6. Once flipped, continue to cook for a couple of minutes until cooked through. Transfer to a roti (flatbread), roll and enjoy!
