Bottle Masala Omelette (East Indian) – Beyond Fragrant
Bottle Masala Omelette Recipe
So my bottle masala omelette is absolutely delicious. Since, my tryst continues with the East Indian Bottle Masala. Hence, I used it for making my breakfast this morning. In fact, the flavours of East Indian bottle masala have enamoured me to cook more and more. And this time, the fiery red colour of the bottle masala gave a nice rich tinge to the omelette I used it in.
So do you know the East Indian Bottle Masala was traditionally stored in long nosed glass bottles. These are usually beer bottles. And, that’s how the masale got it’s name “Bottle Masala“. Back then the bottle masala was tightly packed with a stick to remove the air within the spices in the bottle. This made it airtight and hence not easily spoilt. As a result, spices remained fresh over long periods of time along the humid Indian coastline. Even today, a little is taken out and used in various dishes.
At this time, I didn’t have a fixed recipe in mind for the masala omelette. And, not much came out of my research on the internet either. So I played on by my instincts and got amply rewarded. The omelette came out to me nice & spicy. It was a perfect finish to a filling and satisfying breakfast.
