I love to have eggs anytime of the day, be it scrambled, omelet or boiled eggs. Even though I know that the yolks have high cholesterol content, I cannot see myself eating just the white or even egg substitutes (egg beaters etc). To eat eggs and not feel giulty I have made my serving sizes smaller. This quick and easy vegetable omelet is Indian equivalent to Italian frittata and makes a good dish for anytime of the day, especially for a lazy weekend breakfast (or brunch).

Instructions

  3. Add the tomato, potato, peas, chile, cumin & coriander powders and chopped fresh cilantro and continue to cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the onion has softened and the mixture is well blended. Season to taste with salt and chili powder.
  4. Beat eggs lightly. I usually add 1 tbsp of water and a dash of hot sauce to the eggs.
  5. Add the eggs to the veggie micture, cover, and cook over low heat for 4-5 minutes, or until the underside is golden brown.
Recipe Notes

Sprinkle cheese over the omelet and cook briefly under the preheated broiler until the cheese has melted and the top of the omelet is set.


Slide out of the skillet, cut into wedges and serve immediately.

We had our Indian style frittata with whole grain toast. This omelet makes 4 servings.

  1. Hi pavani, I really liked your recipe but i have a ques which i had even when i first read about the original Frittata. When you put the skillet under the grill the handle of the skillet must get affected by so much heat. So do you need a special skillet with a oven proof handle?

  2. Hi Anupama,
    You need over proof skillet (usually handles are made of steel or some kind of heavy duty material) to safely put it in the oven. Usually there are tags on the skillet that indicate maximum temperatures that (both the skillet & handle) can withstand. Even with over proof handles, it is always safe to use a oven mitt when taking the skillet out. I hope this answers your question.
    Best,
    Pavani
