Egg Omlette Curry (Dimer Dhokar Dalna)

Egg Omlette is a very common item in our daily diet but curry of egg omlette sounds little different. Egg omlette curry is one of my favourite dish since my childhood. My mother used to make omlette with beaten egg mixed with grounded urad or masoor dal in order to make the omlette thick enough to cut into cubes and dip in curry. So Egg lovers this is yet another delicious and different egg recipe for you.

3 Eggs
1/2 cup urad daal or masoor daal (soaked for at least 5 hours and then grind into paste)
1 large onion (finely chopped)
1 large onion (grated)
1 tbsp. ginger garlic paste
2 green chili (slitted)
2 green chili (chopped)
1 tomato (finely chopped)/tomato puree 3 tbsp
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red chili powder
2 bay leaves
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garam masala
Salt (as per taste)
1 tsp Sugar
Coriander leaves chopped

Heat oil in a flat bottomed nonstick pan. Now reduce the flame and spread half of the mixture uniformly and covered with lid and let it cook for about 5 minute. Turn it and cook the other side until become little crisp and golden brown in color. Take it out in a plate and cut into cubes. Repeat the same process for the other half of mixture also.
