This masala omelette is a spiced up version of a classic egg dish. Perfect for midweek meals or a weekend brunch, this richly spiced masala omelette is healthy, filling and flavourful. Fresh chilli adds a real fiery kick, but you can omit if you’re not a big fan of spicy food. Using a combination of whole eggs and egg whites makes this omelette a touch lighter. Egg whites are a great source of protein but low in fat and calories, so perfect for those on a healthier eating regime. You’ll also get an antioxidant boost from trendy turmeric, which is said to have anti-inflammatory properties. Using spices is a great way to add flavour without adding extra fat or calories. As well as being good for you, this speedy, spicy omelette is packed with Indian flavours and just tastes great. For an Indian inspired weekend breakfast, try serving this masala omelette with some warm parathas and a pot of chai.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs plus 2 whites
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • handful spinach
  • ½ small red chilli
  • ½tbsp garam masala
  • ½tsp turmeric
  • ½tsp cumin
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • ½ bunch coriander, chopped

Method

  • Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, spinach and spices to the mix and stir well to combine.

  • Heat the oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion and spring onion for a few mins until softened. Pour in the egg mixture and swirl around the pan with a spatula so the eggs cook evenly, then leave until almost set. Fold in half so the outside sets and the middle is slightly soft.

  • Top with fresh coriander and a little extra chilli, to serve.
