Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ onion , sliced
  • 1 medium cooked potato (leftover boiled or roasted potatoes are fine), cubed
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds
  • 2 large eggs , whisked
  • 1 tbsp natural yogurt or raita
  • good squeeze chilli sauce (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat most of the oil in a pan. Fry the onion for 10 mins until starting to caramelise, then add the potato and fry for a further 8 mins until the edges are beginning to crisp. Add the curry powder, most of the nigella seeds, some seasoning and a splash of water. Cook for 1-2 mins, then scoop the mixture onto a plate. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.

  • STEP 2

    Increase the heat and add the remaining oil to the pan. Add the eggs and some seasoning, then use a spatula to stir a few times. Leave to cook for 30 seconds. Pile the potato filling onto one side of the omelette while the top 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, top with a drizzle of yogurt or raita and some chilli sauce, if you like.
