Mutta Omelette Curry | Egg Omelette Gravy

I just cannot get over my cookbook obsession. I had promised myself I wouldn’t order anymore online as I have no space to keep my current cookbooks. I’m bathing – literally – in papers of recipes and then all the cookbooks that I had promised myself that I would not get any. Yesterday, while surfing Book Depository, I found some amazing little cookbooks for Australia Weekly, which I have seen in stores over here and cost literally a bomb – yeah, cookbooks are absolutely expensive in this part of the world! You know how many I ordered, 10 of them!!! πŸ™ Now I don’t know where to go and put them in. The funniest part is that these will all come to my office address and I bet I will raise a few eyebrows out here.


Sharjah witnessed the biggest book fair ever in November last year and I had decided to go with a string budget to ensure that I donPin‘t buy much books – read cookbooks!!! Surprisingly, my HD joined in along with the kids and I was so happy that I was having my cashier around! πŸ˜‰ While he browsed through the books, I left the kids with him – yes, they are more happy and disciplined with their abba than with their ummi – and went for a round and this particular book caught my attention. I had heard big about it and just went through the book, then decided that I had to buy it.


It was ignored for a couple of months, then I pulled it out and tried the Chettinad Egg Curry, as per the exact quantities as mentioned, and boy, I was absolutely disappointed. The curry in the picture looked so creamy and what I got was a watery mess!!! After this incident, I was kind of wary about going back to this book. Then I made this egg curry. Having gained some wisdom from the last goof up, I ensured I didn’t pour the same amount of water as mentioned in the book. This time, it came out perfect, and that’s why I am sharing it here!!! πŸ™‚


Moral of the story: Do not pour the same amount of water as mentioned in any recipe. Pour half or even 1/4th and add additional water if required, later!!! πŸ™‚
