Potato omelette/Potato Frittata Recipe

We are into another lockdown. Last lockdown many people reported learning new skills especially home making skills like baking, cooking and teaching children. You might be searching for a new recipe at this time. Being at home on maternity leave has made me research more about new recipes. Now that I'm not rushing off to work early in the morning making do with some tea and store-bought brioche rolls, I can afford to make some luxurious and healthy breakfast. So I had potatoes and carrots and was thinking of what to do with them when I stumbled on a YouTube video. I modified the recipe a little bit to suit what I had. The thing I love about cooking as against baking is that you can be more flexible with cooking recipes. So if you have potatoes, carrots and eggs, you can recreate this recipe replacing all other ingredients with whatever you have available. So let's get cooking already.

List of ingredients (serves 3 adults)
  • 3 British potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 bulb onion
  • 1 Tbsp thyme
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • 9 eggs
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 scotch bonnet pepper
  • 2 tsps crushed chilli pepper
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste

Method

1. Chop your potatoes and carrots into small cubes. Cut the green peppers and onions as well.
2. Add some oil in a frying pan and fry the potatoes, carrots and onions for about 5 mins. Add seasoning cube, thyme and salt. Set aside
3. In a clean bowl, break 9 eggs. Add the tomatoes, chilli and scotch bonnet peppers and spices. Whisk all.
4. Pour the potato-carrot mix into the egg mixture
5. Pour little oil in 2 frying pans, divide the mixture between these two pans and let cook on low heat for about 10 mins or till you see the top is cooked as well.

Food is ready. You can eat this alone as breakfast or as a side to rice for lunch or dinner.

Bon appetite!
