Unfortunately few years ago I developed allergy to it so left having it but my son like omelette too much and hubby too likes egg stuffs. So for them I used to cook these. Omelette is generally cooked every day at my place but other varieties are rarely cooked because of me.

This is so quick yet yummy curry recipe you can prepare in jiffy.
