Whisk together the eggs and milk with the salt and pepper.
Chop up any large pieces of meat or vegetables in the curry.
Add the curry dishes to the eggs and stir in.
Heat a pan to a medium heat and add a dash of butter.
Pour in the curry mix into the pan.
Move it around gently in the pan until it starts to firm up.
Heat up the grill (For our American friends it's the Broiler) to a medium hot heat and pop the omelette under to cook the top for approximately 5-8 minutes until the omelette goes golden brown.
Serve straight away with mango chutney, fresh onion salad or have it on it's own. Always delicious.
If there are large pieces of meat for examples chicken, lamb or beef. It is best to cut them up so they heat up all the way through.
The estimated nutrition estimate assumes 2 450g portions of chicken tikka masala with pilau rice are used. The actual nutrition values will of course vary wildly depending on which curry/takeaway ingredients you choose to add.
