Omelette aka Kaka`s Omelette

Many many years ago there was a hindi movie called Bawarchi staring the flamboyant Rajesh Khanna also known as Kaka...Following the release of the film,a spurt of his recipes appeared in the magazine Filmfare...this was one of the recipes that stood out in the much so that it was always referred to as the Rajesh Khanna omelette...its easy to make and tastes delicious...many of you would have done variations of this recipe,but i follow the method to the tee even now... 

6 large eggs beaten well
3 large onions minced real fine
2 green chillies minced fine
2 large red tomatoes minced fine
A handful of coriander leaves minced
1/2 tsp of ginger and garlic paste
1/2 tsp red chillie powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
A dash of pepper powder
4 tbs of butter or olive oil
salt to taste

Beat the eggs well with a dash of pepper and a bit of salt and set aside.Take a heavy bottom pan add butter or oil,add the green chillies first and saute for a few seconds...add the onions and coriander leaves and fry till golden brown,at this point dont overdo the onions,add the ginger garlic paste and saute well ,next add the turmeric and chillie powder along with the tomatoes and mix it all up really well,add some salt to soften the this on a slow fire as at this stage it tends to burn a with a wooden spoon keep mixing till all the water has evaporated and all your left is a mushy paste remove from thoroughly ....mix this into the beaten egg...In a pan add butter or oil heat gently,not flaming hot..add a spoon or two of the egg mixture and form an omelette ,cover and allow to cook well,do not flip the omelette but fold,roll or do anything else other than flip it...the colour we are looking for is golden brown here...serve hot..can be put in rotis and formed into a roll,tastes fantastic with curd rice,  rasam rice as well....
I know that this is an easy recipe to follow,but do remember to take some time making this,and please remember Rajesh Khanna when you make it..i do....always share your food with love and kindness
