Who says you can only use “Indian” spices for Indian food? Definitely not me!
I unleashed my full creativity on the kitchen and I ended up with an omelette, mushrooms and salad.
For the omelette:
- eggs (obviously)
- spring onions
- a small green chilli
- 1 tablespoon of garam masala
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- a teaspoon of black mustard seeds
For the mushrooms:
- three garlic cloves
- cumin seeds
- rosemary (chopped, dry – definitely would have been nicer if fresh!)
The salad was simply dressed with salt, black pepper and olive oil.
This mix was weird, but in a good way. I suspect this way of preparing the omelette has already invented elsewhere (probably by Persian immigrants to India?), but I had not made it before.
In any case it was really nice to not have to leave the house to get food!
