Frittata is a thick omellette that combines a varity of vegetables with eggs being the main focus of the dish.They are great as a breakfast item or as a filling for sandwiches and can be eaten hot or cold.
Here is my no- bake recipe that my five-year old loves.
2 large onions chopped
2 medium-sized grated carrots
1 large onion chopped
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 tsp tomato paste (optional)
chopped parsley(dhania)for garnishing
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste
1.Whisk together eggs,salt,pepper in a small bowl.
2.Heat a large pan and pour the 3 tablespoons of olive oil,it should cover base of pan.
3.Add the chopped red onion and saute’ it till it turns translucent.
4.Add the chopped garlic,cook for 5-10 seconds till the aroma fills your kitchen,make sure not to brown it as it turns bitter.
5.Add the tomatoes,fry till tender,then add the grated carrots season with some salt and pepper to taste and cover with a lid.
6.Let to cook for 5-7 minutes till the vegetables turn soft.
7.Add the eggs cover and sprinkle the parsley on top.
8.Cover with lid and let the steam cook the eggs till they bubble and they omelette pulls from the side of the pan,about 3-6 minutes.
9.Make sure top of the omelette is firm before you slide it onto a large plate.
10.Garnish with left over parsley and serve.
NB:If you like both sides of your omelette browned after step 9 just cover the plate with the pan again,turn omelette’s uncooked side onto pan and let cook for 2-3 minutes and serve.
Variations:You can add sausage meat,ham or bacon to make your frittata ”meatier”.Or sprinke it with some cheese , melt under your grill..yum yum yum.
