How to make the omelet.
Place a frying pan over medium heat, pour in the oil, heat oil for a few seconds and add just enough of the omelette mixture to fill and spread around the pan.
Spread the omelette mixture around the pan then cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes or until the top layer of the omelette is firm.
Once the bottom of the omelette is cooked and the top side is firm, flip it over and cook the other side.
If you are worried about the omelette breaking while you flip it around, don’t.
These can easily replace the need to cut them to the required size which would be the next step in the recipe instruction.
Repeat the above step with any remaining omelet mixture.
Once you’ve made the omelettes transfer it to a plate and slice them into fairly large pieces.
How to make the egg curry gravy.
Place a large pan that will hold the omelettes without crowding over medium heat and pour in the oil.
Add curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste, onions and cook over medium heat until the onions turn slightly golden.
Add turmeric, curry powder, chilli powder and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Pour in the coconut milk, season with salt and slow simmer over low heat for 3-5 minutes or until the gravy turns slightly darker and thick with the spices.
Once the gravy is made, gently drop the omelette slices into the curry gravy without crowding them and slow simmer for another 5 minutes until gravy slightly thickens. avoid using a spoon to move the omelette
Instead, shake the pan around to submerge the omelet in the gravy.
