Umm Salihah’s Yummy Omelette

As it was Jummah day and I fancied making everyone a special breakfast, I decided to make this, a dish taught to me by my friend Aunty R and modified by me a little.

6 eggs
2 tablespoons water
Chilli powder to suit taste (I used one teaspoon)
Salt to taste (I used ½ a teaspoon)
1 small onion - diced
1 tomato – de-seeded and diced
¼ green pepper – diced
1 medium potato – cut into fine julienne strips
Oil to fry

Mix water and chilli powder. Add onion, tomato, potato, green pepper and salt. Heat the oil in a (preferably non-stick) frying pan. Pour half of the mixture into the pan and cook on low heat for approx minute. Slide onto a plate and then carefully turn over and return to pan to cook through the other side – should take 1-3 minutes. Slide out onto a plate once cooked and quarter.

You can eat alone, or I like to serve with toast.

Alhamdulillah a few of you have requested recipes for various dishes. I am happy to share the ones that are mine, but many are the recipes of a friend (Aunty F – I am friends with a lot of Aunties, they are handy to know). She is a widow with young daughters and currently in a very difficult financial situation. So although she is happy for me to share her recipes, home remedies and beauty tips, I would like to compile them in a way that benefits her too insh’Allah. That said I will be posting details of some of them as I go.
