Frittata with a Touch of Desi Spice

Frittata is a dish very similar to an omelet. Vegetables are sauteed, beaten eggs are poured on top and then cooked on low heat or baked or broiled till the eggs sets up. This Desi flavored frittata uses onions, green chilies, tomatoes and gets its warmth from a little bit of ginger and a touch of cumin. Tastes marvelous with paratha.   

4 Egg whites
8 Cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup Onion (chopped)
2/3 green chilies
ginger paste

Chop up onions, tomatoes and green chilies. Cherry tomatoes can be substituted with any other kind. 

Saute onion and chilies in oil till the onion turns translucent. This will take about 2 minutes 

After a while add tomatoes, ginger paste and cumin powder.

Keep cooking till the tomatoes are mashed up. This will take another 5 minutes or so.

Now add in the egg whites that have been beaten with a fork. instead of egg whites feel free to use 3 whole eggs.

Lower the heat and wait for eggs to set. Once you've poured the eggs, do not attempt to stir as you will end up with scrambled eggs. At this stage you can put the entire pan in the oven on broil for a few minutes. 

Or fold it over to give an omelet feel to it. 

Once cooked, plate it up and serve warm with any naan or paratha or any other bread of your choosing.

As always..ENJOY!!
