Fresh Turmeric Omelette

Turmeric is medicinal herb used in almost every Indian recipe. So when I found fresh turmeric roots in my local supermarket, its easy to say, I was super excited.

Reading up on how to use it was simple enough. However chewing it raw  was not so easy.

Anyways a simple and easy recipe for turmeric was making an omelette.

Fry chopped turmeric in ghee. Once they smell just perfect and this is something you will realize as soon as the fragrance hits you, switch off the stove. Now a lot of people like to beat the eggs before making an omelette. But I don’t. Instead I crack open the eggs and watch the whites form just on the residual heat in the pan. Stab the yolks and spread them up a little. Switch on the stove and keep it around low to medium heat. As the eggs start to set add chopped spring onions.

Slowly lift the pan on one side and slide in a thin spatula so as to flip a corner.

Season with salt just before serving them hot and steaming.

Enjoy a colorful and completely satisfying meal.

Turmeric leaves its color on everything. If you are very fussy then wear gloves.

My hand after a good amount of washing and an hour long cycle ride. The color will stay for a long time.
