Spinach and Mushroom Masala Omelets

An omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs quickly cooked with butter or oil in a frying pan, sometimes folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables or even meat. These omelet always favorite among the kids.Blending eggs with onion,tomatoes and Indian spice was kind of usual thing in my kitchen but I had some spinach laying in my freeze for quite sometime. Why not prepare spinach omelet with some mushrooms just like served in IHop but omitting the chesse with Indian masala. It was a perfect combination with curd rice and it just vanished once served.
