Method

In large, nonstick skillet, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat; cook onion, ginger, coriander seeds and mustard seeds, stirring, for two minutes. Add hot pepper, spinach and half of the salt ; cover and cool, stirring once, for 4 minutes or just until the spinach is wilted.

In bowl, whisk together eggs, water, pepper and remaining salt ; stir in spinach mixture. In same skillet, melt remaining butter over medium heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook, stirring gently, for about 30 seconds, gently lifting edges with spatula to allow uncooked eggs to flow underneath.

Cook, without stirring, for about two minutes longer or until top is almost set and bottom is golden. Slide onto large plate. Invert pan over plate and invert again to turn omelette. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Cut into quarters.
