Frittata originated from the Italian cuisine , is an egg based dish ,like an omelette or a
This is not folded like an omelette , it is fried in a pan , flipped over carefully with a plate
and served like a pizza.
You can serve with sauces if you like . I topped with a tangy chilli sauce.This can be
served with any of your favourite sauces too.
You can make this for breakfast or dinner within minutes.
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 of all 3 coloured capsicums chopped (yellow,green,red)
1 cup coriander leaves/ spinach leaves
1 big leeks chopped fine
1 tsp chilli paste
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1/2 cup Parmesan/ cheddar/mozzarella cheese grated
1/2 cup milk
Salt to taste
1 tblsp butter to sauté the capsicum and leeks
Oil for frying
Beat the egg with salt, and add to the flour.
Mix in milk and water to make a thick ( pancake batter).
Saute the capsicum and leeks lightly and add to the batter.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well .
Pour a little oil into a pan , add the batter .
Cover and cook on a low flame till cooked on one side.
Flip to the other side with the help of a plate.Return to pan and cook on the other side .
Serve with sauce .
Variations :Paneer , prawns,chicken, minced meat , mix of your favourite veggies can be made into your choice of frittata.
Tip: Instead of adding grated cheese ,you could make cheese sauce / white sauce for a creamy flavour and add to the batter.
