Omelette Kurma recipe | Egg omelet curry recipe south Indian style with step by step photos and video recipe. simple, tasty side dish curry option with egg. suitable for chapathi and any Indian bread.

I have already posted a mutta poricha curry/omlette curry which is a typical Kerala style curry using coconut milk which is entirely different from this one.

It has a typical south Indian Kurma flavor to it. While the omelet in this recipe is not cooked on tawa but steam cooked. The reason is, the steam cooked omelet pieces stay fluffy and intact in curry for a longer time than the oil cooked one which gets scrambled easily.
