Spiced Date and Cinnamon Omelette

This month I’m sharing a selection of recipes for Asda as part of their Ramadan series. This is one of my favourite recipes to start the day – a sweet, buttery, omelette filled with caramelised dates and warming spices. Serve with some flatbreads or naan.


100g pitted Madinah Khudry dates, halved

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground ginger

6 tbsp water

5 eggs

¼ tsp sea salt

2 tbsp milk

2 tbsp butter

Flaked toasted almonds to garnish (optional)


Place the dates, cinnamon, ground ginger and water in a small pan. Stir well, put a lid on the pan and cook on a low heat for a couple of minutes, until the dates have softened.

Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a bowl and add the salt and milk. Beat with a fork until fluffy.

Put a frying pan over a low heat and let it get hot. Add the butter. When it has melted and is bubbling, add the dates and fry for 2 minutes. Then space the dates out evenly in the pan and then pour the eggs in, giving the pan a gentle shake to spread them out evenly.

Cook until the omelette is almost set and then fold in half and lightly press down. Slide onto a plate and dust with a little more cinnamon and some flaked toasted almonds if you are using them.
