Ingredients for the frittata
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 sprig curry leaves, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3 sprigs spring onion, (the white stem part)
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup button mushroom, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon water or stock
250ml egg whites
3 tablespoon coriander leaves, finely chopped
3 sprigs spring onion, green part, finely chopped
1 tomato, sliced
spring onions for garnish
For the cucumber salad
2–3 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon, black salt
1/2 teaspoon, peri peri seasoning
1 teaspoon honey
Take a pan and add in the oil, chopped curry leaves, chopped garlic and chopped spring onion (the stem part / white part only). Sauté for a few minutes. Add in the finely chopped onion and the finely chopped green chillies. Sauté for a few minutes till the onions are soft and starting to brown.
Add in the finely chopped bell peppers and the thinly sliced mushrooms. Mix well to combine. Add a little salt and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for a few minutes on a low flame till the mushrooms are soft.
Take a bowl and add in the black pepper powder, turmeric powder, red chilli flakes, salt and little water. Mix well to combine. Adding the spice powder first in water avoids lumps and the powders dissolve and spread evenly in the egg mixture.
Add in the egg whites. You can also add whole eggs instead of egg whites. Add in the chopped coriander leaves and spring onions. Mix well to combine. Add in the egg mixture to the pan. Reduce the flame to low. Gently scramble the egg whites until its 75% cooked. Cooking the eggs on a low flame keeps the eggs soft. Flatten the surface and top it with tomato slices.
With the flame on low, cook for 3-4 minutes. Cover the pan with a lid while cooking at this stage. Remove the pan from heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Gently cut triangles of the frittata.
In the mean time, lets make a cucumber salad. Slice the cucumbers in a mandoline. Add it to a bowl. To the bowl, add in the black salt, peri peri seasoning and the honey. Mix well to combine. Chill in the refrigerator till needed.
Arrange the cucumber slices on a plate and serve with a slice of the frittata. Frittata can be served hot or at room temperature.
