Brain Omelette / Moolai Omelette

Standard

As already discussed in the previous post everyone including kids like this goat/lamb brain and I shared few brain recipes like brain omelette, scrambled brain, Spaghetti with Brain masala, Brain masala and Brain Fry followed by these here comes my another Brain recipe – Brain omelette Version-2, since the first version consumes more time to cook, the second version takes less time compared to the first one. The only difference here is I have ground the brain along with egg.

It should be served hot, so that it would be soft, spongy and melts in the mouth. Let us move on to the recipe…

All the non-veg eaters including kids have craze for Brain, because of its soft texture. Whenever we are to Madurai, we never miss to go to Amma Mess – too many varieties. I came to know the hotel through my mother-in-law, she loves their biryani. Now I love the hotel a lot, when we are in plan to Madurai, first of all we just set the timetable for Amma Mess. I love each and every food items from their hotel. One of my favorite is brain omelette, so recently I have tried in my home, the taste was too good. Let us move on to the recipe…

Scrambled Brain / Moolai Poriyal

Standard

As I have told Brain is one of my family’s favorite from all the other spare of Lamb / Goat. In India, only when we go early to mutton stall we would get brain as much as we need, but this weekend my hubby was late to the stall, there was only three brains leftover and so he got it thinking it would be enough for kids.

But I thought of scrambling egg with the brain, so that it will be enough for 3 adults and 2 kids, this resulted in this dish. The dish was much delicious and the egg when cooked with the brain was too soft like brain. Everyone in home loved it a lot. Let us move on to the recipe…
