Indian Frittata

Indian Frittata

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette with few more ingredients like veggies or meat or pasta, based on one’s flavor. The word frittata means “fried” which means the eggs are beaten fried in skillet with fried potatoes.

I have named it as Indian Frittata, since I have induced few basic Ingredients spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala to flavor the frittata. This goes out good for breakfast. Let us move on to the recipe…

As of Friday, I am taking it to Fiesta Friday #109 hosted by Angie@thenovivegarderner. Been long time and now I am to party.

  1. I think a frittata is perfect for any meal of the day. My husband always says that he could eat the entire dish if I serve it for dinner (so he doesn’t want it!). I often get away with serving one if I give him roasted potatoes on the side. 🙂 He may change his mind if I make an Indian-spiced version- thanks!
