Step 39

Cook over medium heat until the onions turn slightly golden.

Step 41

Add turmeric(1/4 tsp), curry powder(1 tbsp curry powder, any regular curry powder would do, I tend to change the curry powder sometimes with Jaffna curry powder just to change things a bit).

Finally, add chili powder(1/2 tsp increase as per your need)and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Step 45

Once the spices are cooked, pour in the coconut milk.

Step 49

Once the gravy is made, gently drop the omelette slices into the curry gravy without crowding them.

Serve the warm omelette curry with toasted bread or a bowl of rice.
