Sri Lankan Omelette

Sri Lankan Omelette

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 green or red chilli
  • 1 sprig of curry leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Chop the onion, chilli and curry leaves.

To the bowl of beaten eggs, add the onion, chilli, curry leaves, salt, pepper and cornflour. Mix well.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot pour in half the omelette mixture.

Cook for a couple of minutes, carefully turn over and cook the other side. Make another omelette with the remaining mixture.

This omelette gets a unique flavor from the use of curry leaves and red or green chilis.

I never knew this omelet until today. I made a 3 egg omelet this morning with 3 fresh prawns, slivers of ham, chopped parsley, garlic chives, and lemon thyme (and a pinch of cumin). It was wonderful. I was thinking about coriander, cumin and garlic chives, but hadn't thought about using chilli or the curry leaves. I have everything in my garden except the curry leaves so I can use coriander instead.

My father made this dish for us as children. He didn't use corn flour either but he used maldive fish... I used to love this dish.

Shobhana's right. Also a few crubs of maldiv fish also adds to the favor.

From Shobhana M., India:

I have not tried the Sri Lankan Omelette yet as I've just read it now. My family in India makes almost the same kind except that we don't use cornflour and instead of curry leaves we use coriander leaves. We also use green chillies and not red. The eggs are beaten well and then salt and black pepper powder is added and beaten; then chopped onion, green chilli and coriander leaves are added and mixed. Then it is cooked on a hot iron plate or pan with a little oil or butter. Delicious with tomato sauce or ketchup!
