Masala Omelette

All Breakfast Indian Flavors


The staple Indian breakfast.

Growing up, this omelette was the only omelette that was served up at home. This made it to the table for breakfast, brunch, or even a quick and easy dinner.

It’s filling, tasty, and hits the spot. As a kid, I had this with a slice of toast and some ketchup for dipping, and I’ll admit I did enjoy the ketchup, but now, coriander chutney is my favorite with this. To replace the toast, sweet potato toast, or just some simple raw veggies on the side.

Pair this with my golden latte for a satisfying start to your morning!
