4 tablespoons of Ghee [Indian butter] or 4 Tablespoons of vegetable oil 8 eggs (Farm fresh/ vegetarian fed, cage free eggs are the best option) 2 tablespoons of milk (optional for extra fluffiness) 1 tablespoon turmeric powder 1 tablespoon garam masala powder 8 tablespoons of a small red onion (chopped very small) 2 tablespoon of fresh ginger (minced) optional: 1 small red or green chili (minced) or use 1/4 teaspoon of dried chili flakes (spicy)

You’ll Need: 1 small sauté pan 1 whisk or fork 1 medium size bowl 1 spatula 1 cutting board 1 knife

Omelette: 1. Place sauté pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium/ high 2. Add 1 tablespoon of oil or ghee + swirl around the pan to heat it up 3. Add a droplet of water to insure that the pan is hot enough; it should sizzle when it’s ready 4. Pour 1/4 of the egg mixture into hot pan + cook for 10 seconds + turn heat to medium 5. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes, use spatula to fold in half (omelette should release easily and be golden brown on the bottom) 6. Remove from heat + let rest for 1 1/2 minutes 7. Repeat for remaining mixture (if you have two pans you can make both omelettes at the same time!) 8. Enjoy!
