Bombay potato omelette
This is my go-to brunch, especially if there are any leftover cooked new potatoes in the fridge. Eggs are a great canvas for spicy flavours.
SERVES 1 PREP 5 mins COOK 25 mins EASY V 1 tbsp vegetable oil
½ onion, sliced
1 medium cooked potato (a leftover boiled or roasted potato is fine), cut into cubes
1 tsp medium curry powder
1 tsp nigella seeds
2 large eggs, beaten 1 tbsp natural yogurt or raita chilli sauce, to serve (optional)
1 Heat most of the oil in a frying pan and fry the onions for 10 mins until starting to caramelise. Add the potatoes and fry for 8 mins more until the edges of the potato cubes are starting to crisp up. Add the curry powder, most of the nigella seeds, some seasoning and a splash of water. Cook for another 1-2 mins, then remove to a plate. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.
2 Turn up the heat and add the remaining oil to the pan. Pour in the eggs, season, stir a few times with a spatula, then leave to cook undisturbed for 30 seconds. Spoon the potato mix over one side of the omelette while the surface is still a little soft. Fold the omelette over to cover the filling, and cook for a final 1-2 mins if you like your omelette set all the way through. To serve, spoon over the yogurt or raita, and drizzle with some chilli sauce, if you like.
