Millets Frittata

4 from 2 votes

The word "frittata" is Italian and roughly translates to "fried". It is made with fried beaten eggs and roughly resembles a thick, fluffy omelette that's often filled with ingredients such as meats, cheeses or vegetables to give the dish flavour and volume. This recipe uses familiar ingredients from the Indian kitchen as stand-ins for egg and does away with the baking, making this the perfect recipe for a quick, easy and flavour-packed breakfast (or lunch and dinner) fix.
