Tomato omelet (Vegetarian)

Most of the people from and around Maharashtra might know this simple and tasty vegetarian omelet. I was introduced to this dish in Belgaum. I am not sure where I ate it first, but I liked it and I used to make it regularly for my breakfasts or for snacks. But somehow after my marriage, I kind of forgot about this. I felt my husband might not like the taste of it and stopped making it.

Then one day, few months ago, Aruna sent me a recipe for it. Since I had a pathetic tava at that time, I was a bit hesitant to try this. Then one fine day when I ran out of all ideas for breakfast, I tried this and I simply loved it. But due to bad tava, the picture was not at all worth posting here. Few days ago, Aruna again reminded me about this and also sent me some more additions. Thanks to her suggestion, now I have one of the best frying pans which can also be used as tava and the first dish I tried when I bought those pans was this omelet. To tell the truth, this version of tomato omelet has an amazing taste and I loved it more than what I had tasted before. This can be prepared literally in minutes, so this has become one of my favorite breakfasts to cook as well as eat. Do try this version to know what I am saying. Thanks Aruna.
