Laziness is my biggest enemy..It doesnt allow me to do anything worthwhile..Sometimes I feel like reading a book..then I feel lazy and just sit for hours,just looking at the cover of the book..This was what usually happened a couple of years ago,before our lovely kids came into our life.But that laziness,led to a few worthwhile things..You didnt get me?I will explain..My laziness to cut/chop veggies for lunch,led me to cook up a few easy to do recipes.This was one among those few recipes- My version of Curried Omelette or Omelette curry!It is soo tasty..specially when the spongy omlette pieces gets soaked up in the coconut milk gravy..along with the tanginess of the tomatoes and heat from the green chillies!Simply irressistable.Do not miss it.Its a perfect dish!

    Nice! I will try this version too. I often make Bengali Omletter Jhol. I am sure the coconut milk will elevate it to another level!
