  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cilantro, ground coriander, salt and turmeric until the whites and yolks have evenly combined.

  2. Add the vegetable oil and cumin seeds to a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, and fry the seeds until they start to pop.

  3. Add the garlic, onions and chilies and sauté until the onions are just starting to brown around the edges and are very fragrant.

  4. Add the tomatoes, and then pour the egg mixture over everything. Turn the heat down to medium low, and let the egg cook, using a spatula to gently stir the mixture until some curds start to form. Stop mixing, and cook until the egg is mostly set.

  5. Flip the omelet over and cook the other side for a few seconds. Flip the omelet back over onto a plate and serve.
