FRITTATA ( LEEKS ‘N’ CILANTRO)


Frittata originated from the Italian cuisine , is an egg based dish ,like an omelette or a

crustless quiche.

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.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup wheat flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

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

METHOD

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.

Anyway , try your innovations too,and post in your comments and suggestions!
