Karandi omelette

Written by: 7aumsuvai
Karandi omelette is an egg omelette prepared using Thalippu karandi. This is a popular dish at my native place Theni. Thalippu karandi is a long handle iron pan we use to temper chutneys and gravies. Making an omelette in an iron pan adds more taste to it. Also if we eat this hot omelette in a banana leaf will add an amazing flavor to the dish. Let me take you to the recipe now.

Ingredients: Serves 2
      • 2 nos – Egg
      • 1/4 cup – Sambar onion (chopped finely)
      • 1 or 2 nos – Green chillies (chopped finely)
      • 1 pinch – Turmeric powder
      • 2 pinches – Pepper powder
      • 2 tsp – Oil
      • Salt as needed
