bombay diary: masala cheese omelette
believe it or not, i made yet another trip to bombay last week for a two day offsite with my client. we stayed at the lovely the resort at marve beach, about an hour north west of the international airport.
i did not get any time to enjoy the facilities at the resort (especially the authentic keralan ayurvedic spa!) but i did relish the hearty buffet breakfast that i had on both days. breakfast is usually my favourite meal at these big resorts. i just love the massive spread of sweet and savory foods - the cereals and muesli, wide variety of fruit, different breads and jams, pancakes, waffles, idli, dosa, vada - just about anything you can want for breakfast and it's served!
my favourite part of the buffet breakfast at the resort at marve beach was the eggs-on-demand chef who made an absolutely wicked masala omelette with lots of cheese for me. he took two eggs and beat them up lightly. he then added a handful of finely chopped onion, tomatoes, capsicum, coriander, green chillies as well as salt and freshly ground pepper. he then poured this mixture on a sautee pan which had a teaspoon of oil and had been heated for a few minutes.
after a few minutes when the omelette was beginning to cook, he added the cheese. when the cheese started to melt, the omelette was expertly folder over on a hot plate. i chomped down the omelette with lots of tabasco.
