I haven't been a very good girl this weekend, diet-wise. I have had a weird week with the TV show being on every day and all that food has gone to my head. I have ditched my diet for a few days and set out to curb every single craving i have had of late. My first stop this week was at 'Wahaca' one of my favourite Mexican restaurants in town, offering authentic 'market style' tacos and an assortment of small dishes to suit every taste. This is one of the places in London where i absolutely cannot leave without having dessert (no matter how stuffed i am). Churros are my absolute favourite things to eat, when talking of sweets. Piped doughnut batter dipped in sugar, with a smattering of cinnamon and served with an unctuously indulgent slick of melted dark chocolate, into which you dip the Churros in. This is simplicity at its best! For someone like me, who simply isn't a dessert lover, this bowls me over everytime. No wonder its eaten everywhere from Mexico to Spain!
This morning (and when i say morning, i actually mean noon) i decided to make something that i have long been craving... a Masala omelette. Recipe is simple enough. Large frying pan with a little oil, lightly fry off half a small onion (finely chopped), with one whole green chilli and a fat clove of garlic (both also finely chopped) One golden, add a heaped teaspoon of Garam Masala to the onion mix as well as a heaped teaspoon of curry powder (of your desired strength). Add 3 good quality, medium sized eggs (i use Clarence Court eggs) and whisk in pan til mixed with the spice and onion mixture and allow to cook and set in the pan, turning (or flipping) it over to cook both sides. Once done serve straight onto a soft Tortilla wrap (or Naan bread if you prefer) season with salt, add some mango chutney, chopped coriander and chopped spring onions and wrap it up and eat it. No fuss, no muss... just full on creamy, spicy yumminess! Eggs really hold spice well, so the flavour is subtle and not as spicy or hot as you would think! Just something unique and very enjoyable! Perfect for breakfast, lunch or a lite snack and let me tell you, its asbolutely delicious.
