How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together eggs and salt.

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add mustard seeds and turmeric; cook 30 seconds or until seeds pop, stirring frequently. Add onions; cook 30 seconds or until soft, stirring frequently. Add tomato; cook 1 minute or until very soft, stirring frequently.

Step 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.

Delicious! I added spinach and used cherry tomatoes instead of plum. I also added cheese, but I wouldn't recommend this because the eggs were already salty enough and the cheese distracted from the flavors in the egg. I will try this again without messing with an already wonderful recipie.

Success! I don't have much success with omelets looking beautiful but this one did after I cooked it. I thought the spices were delicious and added a nice flavor and color to the dish. The tomato and onion added a fresh and tasty touch to it, too!

This omelet was great! Both my Dad and I loved it. I had to use dabs of mustard added after the egg because I didn't have the seeds, but it probably would have been better with the mustard flavor more distributed. I also used egg substitute. Great, flavorful recipe!

What a delicious recipe. Made exactly as instructed, the omelet slid out perfectly and had wonderful flavor. I wasn't all that fond of the mustard seeds and would probably use ground mustard next time, but the combination of spices and vegetables was delicious.

I was not sure how egg and turmeric will taste together but it was a great omelet! Definitely one of my favorite breakfasts now.
