Afghani Omlette

Afghani Omlette

Mornings and breakfasts are inseparable. To have an easy and healthy is ideal but busy mornings can mean gobbling down junk food.

Not anymore. This Omlette, though the name states omelette, Afghani Omlette is more like bullseye or sunny side up eggs on a bed of chopped veggies.

What is stunning about this dish is that it is simply uncomplicated, and to believe that something so easy can turn out this delicious is just stunning! When the cubed potatoes crisp and brown the juices from the tomato caramelize to form this umami flavor that is unbelievably good. This dish requires no spices and is prepared with basic ingredients you can find at home. 

The first time I came across this omelette, I felt what was so great in this dish that made it unique. Well, the addition of potatoes made it interesting, so I definitely had to give it a try and oh boy was it good. The original version that has just salt and pepper has its intense flavor bomb in itself, though I wanted to try using Garam masala and Chilli powder. I'd recommend trying the dish with just salt and pepper for a first timer. 

This is a great recipe for busy mothers especially, kids will love it. Can be had as it is with a spoon or you may dip and eat using any sort of bread.
