Spinach Mushroom Frittata



Spinach Mushroom Frittata

 Frittata is a quick and easy breakfast/brunch recipe.You can whip up quickly a light brunch and there are few things more satisfying. It is a cheesy egg based dish,an Italian style omelet.It is a loaded and quite thick when compared to regular omelet. You can use any sort of vegetables or meat to make frittata. Here I have used spinach and mushrooms.

Ingredients

Eggs-4
Garlic- 2 cloves
Spinach- 2 handfull
bell pepper- 1/2
(use whole baby spinach or chopped)
Mushrooms- 3/4 cup chopped
Milk- 1/4 cup
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
salt to taste
Parmesan cheese- 2 tsp
Mild Cheddar cheese or sharp cheddar grated- 1/3 cup
(or a hand full grated)
Olive oil- 2 tsp



Mince garlic and chop mushrooms into thin slices.Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
On stove top heat a skillet (cast iron or anodized iron pan) and add olive oil. When the oil is hot add mushrooms and chopped  bell pepper and stir fry for about a minute. Add a pinch of salt and pinch of pepper and fry till all the water of the mushroom evaporates. Add spinach and allow to welt.
Meanwhile beat eggs and milk together and mix Parmesan cheese and pepper.
When the vegetables and done evenly spread it all over the pan and pour over the egg mixture and spread the grated cheddar cheese on top.Cook in low flame for about two minutes till the bottom of the omelet is set and the top starts getting cooked.
Transfer into the preheated oven and cook for another 4-5 minutes till the top changes color and the frittata is puffed up. Take out of the oven and allow to cool.Slice and serve warm with toast as breakfast or with a salad as brunch or lunch.

Hope you will all enjoy!

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
