When it's one of those days when you don't want to spend much time in the kitchen this curry comes as a saviour. This curry goes well with rice and rotis also. With rice I make a thin gravy and with rotis a little thick with visible small chunks of onion and tomato. If you like a thin gravy it's advisable to grate or grind the onion into a paste. The mustard oil and paanch phoron gives a distinctive East Indian taste to the gravy.When you are bored of eating eggs the same old way go for this spicy and unique Odia style Omelette curry.Enjoy! ðŸ˜Š
