I am often left with just a handful of mushrooms which won’t suffice for any other recipe. So I would use them up this way. My family lately discovered this to be delicious and now this is on the weekly menu.

Mushrooms are a power house of nutrition, so if you are a fitness freak you are most likely to love this vegetarian meaty goodness.  Mushrooms are versatile and go well in so many dishes like stir fry, curries, fried rice and this mushroom omelette is no exception.

Mildly flavoured with spices and herbs, this omelette also has a great earthy aroma from the stir fried mushrooms. I haven’t used any dairy here but you can very well use butter to cook the omelette and milk to beat the eggs which can make the omelette fluffier. If you love mushroom with cheese then you made add mozzarella or parmesan.

I have used white button mushrooms for a milder flavor but cremini also go well in this recipe.

Preparation

1. Slice a medium onion & half cup mushrooms. Chop 2 to 3 garlic cloves, 1 to 2 green chilies and handful of coriander leaves. You can use other veggies like capsicum, carrots, cabbage etc. Set these aside.

Super delicious! I’ve never tried an omlete in this style before, but mixing the herbs in with the eggs really makes a difference.

What are some dried herbs to use for the “optional dried herbs”? Not sure what would go well with the other flavors. Great recipes!!! Have made many:)

Capsicum is in the ingredients, but not mentioned in the recipe.

Hi swasthi
This mushroom omelette is very delicious.
Instead of keeping mushroom n onion mix aside ive put the mixture into egg mix n later put it in pan n tilted the pan so that mushroom mix is adjusted evenly ……it turned out very well……i used the regular eggs

I made this yesterday acoording to the recipe (I used the last drops of my olive oil) and it was good.!!! Thank you.!
Today, I used coconut oil (finished my olive oil yesterday) and that gave a nice taste, I also.poured the egg mixture direct on the top of the fried veggies and covered the pan with a lid when frying the omelette. I was in a hurry… Next time I’m going to add some garam masala, too, and still cover the pan. With the lid, the omelette is faster ready. So, this recipe works, even if you adapt it 🙂 ! Try it!!! It’s good!
When I make an ‘not Indian’ omelette, I usually add a little bit of water or milk to the egg mixture (1-2 tbs per egg, according to your taste). This makes the omelette even fluffier.
