  • Yield: Serves 2 (serving size: 1 omelet half)


  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced plum tomato

3. Pour egg mixture into pan; spread evenly. Cook until edges begin to set (about 2 minutes). Slide front edge of spatula between edge of omelet and pan. Gently lift edge of omelet, tilting pan to allow some uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Repeat procedure on the opposite edge. Continue cooking until center is just set (about 2 minutes). Loosen omelet with a spatula, and fold in half. Carefully slide omelet onto a platter. Cut omelet in half, and sprinkle with black pepper.
