Sunday Indian Omelette

Omelette or Omelet, no matter what you call it, we can all agree that this french dish has an international appeal. It’s a dish that can be perfected with lots of practice and finesse. Last week, I attended an invite only culinary experience with Chef Floyd Cartoz, the winner of Top Chef Masters and one of the Chefs who made all the mouth watering food you saw in the film The Hundred-Foot Journey. Have you seen it? It’s a movie based on the beset-selling novel by Richard C. Morais, starring Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen,” “Monsters University”), Manish Dayal (“90210, “The Apprentice”). The movie is produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey. If you haven’t seen it, it will be available for purchase on Digital HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack  and On-Demand on Tuesday, December 2nd.

If you’re passionate about cooking, or just enjoy a good movie, then I suggest you go pick up the DVD when it comes out. It could be because I am a foreigner, but all in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It left me feeling happy and hopeful.

I learned a great deal from my chat with Chef Cartoz, his life is somewhat reminiscent of Hassan Kadam.  Chef Cartoz born in India, migrated to the United States and had a hard time transitioning. He eventfully found work and he currently works as an executive chef  at White Street, Tribeca, NY. Drawing from his extensive culinary experience, Chef Cartoz was instrumental in bringing the foods in the novel alive on screen.

Sunday Indian Omelette  is a traditional Sunday morning breakfast in India.  The sellers would walk around the neighborhood, calling out – omelet, omelette, a sign to let the community know they were open for business. It’s usually eaten alone or sometimes in between a slice of bread like a sandwich. If you’ve seen the movie, do you remember when Hassan made an Omelette aux Fines Herbes for Madam Mallory? Chef Cartoz makes this Sunday Indian Omelette to get his kids out of bed when they were younger.
