Spicy Vegetable Omelet

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).
