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!

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…

You can add regular tamarind as souring agent or fish tamarind/kudampuli. Try this you will surely love it.
