Check out our easy spiced omelette recipe with fiery ginger and punchy chilli, served with a crisp tomato and cucumber salad



  • vegetable oil ½ tbsp
  • onion ½, finely chopped
  • green chilli ½, deseeded and sliced
  • ginger ½ a thumb-sized piece, finely chopped
  • plum tomato 1, finely chopped
  • garam masala ½ tsp
  • ground turmeric ¼ tsp
  • eggs 4
  • coriander ½ a small bunch, finely chopped


  • plum tomatoes 2 ripe, sliced
  • cucumber ¼, thinly sliced
onion ½, thinly sliced
  • white wine vinegar 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    To make the salad, put the tomatoes, cucumber, onion and vinegar into a bowl with some seasoning, and toss well.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and gently cook the onion, chilli, ginger and tomato with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes until soft. Stir in the spices and cook for 1 minute. Beat the eggs with a little seasoning and stir through the coriander. Tip the eggs into the pan and swirl to make sure everything is distributed. Cook gently for 10 minutes, lifting up the edges to let any runny egg run underneath, until lightly golden on the bottom. Then, fold over and cook gently for a few more minutes until just set.

  • Step 3

    Cut in half and serve with the salad.
