Fork me now omelette. She’s quick, she’s easy and she’s a little bit sassy.

We have a little black market thing going. I can’t reveal too much but we have a friend with happy chooks “somewhere south of Bathurst” who every couple of weeks delivers to our door the freshest, yellowest, fork me now eggs you’ve ever tasted.

We also have a little no carb thing going. Some days it works. Somedays not. But this is my favourite way to start a well intentioned no carb day. Having said that, I’m a chilli fiend. You might want to hold back on the chilli if it’s not you’re thing.

We were served this every morning at the Jackaranda Guesthouse in Delhi, a lovely B&B in Greater Kailash, a suburb just south of central Delhi. If you’re ever looking for a nice place to stay, it’s a good spot – markets and restaurants just a couple of blocks away.

Very finely – and I mean very finely and evenly – chop some tomatoes, French shallots, green capsicum and Thai green chilli.

I’ve tried it with other chillies but it just doesn’t taste the same. So now, when I find Thai greens in the shop, I buy a few and pop them in a freezer bag. I’ve also tried it with onion and it’s not the same either. So stick to the script with this one …


Two eggs. Don’t fork them too much. Just a little.

lightly fork the eggs

Tip them into a lightly oiled frypan and swirl it around so the eggs spread evenly.

Mix up your ingredients and sprinkle them evenly over the omelette.

Fold over and over again.


fold the omelette

It’s as simple as that. But very tasty.
