coriander chutney, eggs, gluten free, Green chutney, healthy, indian, omelette, vegetarian omelette
A nice change for an omelette. Include cheese or not. Zingy, a little spicy and quite healthy (especially with no added cheese or yogurt) for a mid-week breakfast. Homemade green chutney is also great in a grilled cheese, a bombay sandwich (one of my favorite sandwiches), on potatoes, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, etc.
Ingredients for one omelette
3 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper
shredded cheese (optional)
greek yogurt (optional)
mango ginger chutney (optional)
1 cup fresh cilantro/coriander leaves
1 tsp fresh ginger
2-3 cloves garlic
2 green jalapenos (with a sprinkle of seeds left in for spice)
a handful of fresh mint, chives, basil if available
1 tbs of nuts such as cashews or peanuts
juice of one lime
salt and pepper
dash of water if needed
See this recipe for a similar mint chutney
1) Make the green chutney by tossing everything into a blender or food processor and pureeing. Deseed the jalapenos first but add in a few of the seeds for a little extra kick.
2) Season the eggs with just a little salt and pepper. Heat up a tbs of butter in a frying pan until quite hot and pour in the beaten eggs.
3) Cook the omelette as you normally would (unless you want to follow my system) and then spoon about 2-3 tbs of chutney in the middle before folding over.
4) Serve plain or with greek yogurt, shredded cheese and a sweet chutney like mango ginger chutney.
Great recipe for a chutney..thank you for sharing..;)
Glad you like it!
YUM! Gotta try this. Think I got some chutney or I may make some mango chutney from a recipe I got on one of the blogs I got here. 🙂
Nice 😉 I haven’t tried making a mango chutney yet.
If I can find the recipe I will re-post (or if it wasn’t on the blog I will just post.) Turned out a fav of my hubster! 🙂
Now that’s my kind of food!!! 🙂
I really like green chutney – don’t know why I didn’t think to use it on an omelette before!
I’m so glad it sounds appealing to you. I guess if you like chutney; you’ll like it on almost everything right? I had some leftover chutney on my toast this morning with a thick tomato slice and salt and pepper. Yum.
