Spinach Omelette w/ Indian Fusion

DSC06739 When I am on SBD this is my keeper recipe for breakfast..especially on phase one where no carbs are allowed. So spinach is a replacement for the starchy bread and to make you feel full. I make it so often that even kids started liking it and poor me have to share it with them..good and bad for me. This can be served just by itself or accompanied by oat meal or fresh veggies and coffee on the side.
My perfect combo is this with either a legume salad or freshly sliced sweet peppers and a sugar free decaf.

DSC06736 Ingredients :
2 large Eggs or use Egg Substitute ( I use 2 whites & 1 yellow)
2 cups washed chopped spinach
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1 or 2 Red chillies broken into pieces
4-6 Curry leaves
Salt and Black pepper/red chilly powder to taste

Method :
Add oil to a heated tawa/pan.
Once the oil is hot allow cumin seeds to splutter, then add curry leaves, red chillies and fry without burning.
To this add chopped spinach and cook for a min or two, add enough salt and pepper.
Now spread the cooked spinach on the tawa and break the eggs on it and distribute the eggs evenly to cover the spinach.
DSC06719Add more salt and pepper or red chilly powder.
Once the bottom hardens turn it to the other side.
Cook for a minute and remove from heat.
Serve hot with mixed bean salad or chat to make a healthy breakfast or brunch.
