2 egg masala omelette


I like to try new things for breakfast, of course that is the dream, most mornings I just have enough energy to roll out of bed and roll into car.

Breakfast is an energy drink while stuck in traffic, if I am that lucky, otherwise I just starve away till lunch time.

I came across another one of Madhur Jaffrey’s cook books where she has an entire selection on eggs. I came across her recipe for a 2 egg Indian omelette and I knew I had to try it out.

Seeing as breakfast is the most important meal of the day and well who wants to have a blue Monday?
