Eggs for Breakfast collection No.4: Parsi Pora
A heavy spiced omelette , the Parsi pora is a Sunday breakfast favorite in Mumbai. For those who haven't heard, Parsis are Iranian descendants who settled in India centuries ago. They brought with them a beautiful interesting cuisine which has set a trend especially in Mumbai.

1- Beat the eggs well in a bowl until light and frothy. OPTIONAL: Add a dash of cold water/milk. Season with salt.

3- Add it to the beaten eggs and mix well.
4- In a pan heat some oil/ghee and pour the mixture. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 5 mins on each side until well cooked inside.
(Its ok if it breaks while flipping, the taste remains same :D )
