Omelette, etymologically a French word, has since been modified and its variants, like the frittata or the Greek omeleta, can be found across the world. In India too, the vendors of Delhi, have taken the omelette up a notch. The staple ingredient of every household has been spruced up to give us the pizza omelette.
Pizza omelette, a crossover between a pizza and an omelette, has become a speciality of Dwarka Sector 7. One can find many street food vendors selling the same, however, the one sold at Ramphal Chowk by a stall named Rajiv Bhai ki Spl. Pizza Omelette is truly a delicacy. The stall is owned by Shiv Kumar who has been doing the same for the past 3 years. People from the neighbourhood start lining up at his stall as soon as it opens. He also sells various other sorts of omelettes including cheese, chicken, paneer and even dry fruits. Shiv Kumar sets up his stall at 3 pm and serves till 11 pm, making for a great evening snack. The stall is easy to spot, being quite popular in the locality and can be easily reached by metro.
The pizza omelette is prepared live and its price varies from rupees 80-240, depending on the number of eggs used to make the omelette, going upto 10 eggs. The omelette is first cooked in large quantities of butter, either in Amul butter or its healthier alternative Nutralite, then stuffed with tomatoes, onion, ginger, and chillies, and later 4 slices of bread attached to it while cooking. So far, the dish looks pretty basic and simple, however, what follows, makes it stand apart. The omelette is finished off with toppings of liberal quantities of grated cheese, cream, beetroot, paneer, pomegranate, and fresh coriander. The finished product truly looks like a pizza and as you dig in, you’ll discover the variety of ingredients used in the making. The pizza omelette is served with two types of chutney, and a little salad on the side. If you are looking for an indulgence and do not mind the calories, this is the dish to go for.
