Swiss Roll Omelette Curry

Sri Lankan Muslims are very fond of eggs. And they have many ways of preparing them. This curry made with an omelette cut into strips. The gravy is like a thick spicy coating around the omelette strips. I named this curry Swiss roll omelette curry because of the way when we cut the egg, we have to roll the egg like Swiss roll. 🙂



For the omelette:

Egg 3 Large
Green Chillies 2 (Chopped)
Onion 1 Medium (Chopped finely)
Coriander Leaves 2 TSP (Chopped)
Black pepper powder 1/8 TSP
Salt ½ TSP
Oil ¼  TBS

For the curry paste:

Fresh coconut 2 TBS (Grated)
Cumin seeds ½ TSP
Fennel seeds ½ TSP
Coriander powder 2 TSP
Red chili powder 1 TSP
Turmeric Powder ½ TSP
Garam Masala Powder ½ TSP

For the curry:

Onion 1 Large (Sliced)
Green Chilies 2 (Chopped)
Tomato 1 Large (Sliced)
Coconut milk 2 TBS
Salt 1 TSP or to taste


How i made it:-

  • To make the omelette, whisk the eggs, add the onion, green chilies, coriander leaves, freshly ground pepper and salt to taste. Mix well.
  • Heat oil in a large pan and, when oil is hot pour in the egg mixture.
  • When the lower side of the omelette is cooked, turn the omelette over with a large spatula.
  • Let the other side cook, then remove from the heat.
  • First cut the omelette in half and then roll the omelette like Swiss roll and cut in to strips. Set aside.



  • To make the curry paste, put the coconut, cumin, fennel seeds, coriander, red chili powder, turmeric and garam masala powders in to a blender.
  • Add two tablespoon of water and grind to a fine paste. Set aside.


  • Heat the oil in the wok and fry the sliced onions over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the curry paste and fry for 4 minutes.
  • Add little more oil if the mixture sticks to the pan. Fry the curry paste properly without the raw smells.
  • Add the green chilies and tomato and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Add water and salt to taste.



  • Simmer for 10 minutes until the bubbles to appear.
