                                                          Eggetarian's delight

Remember Popeye? As a kid I was a huge fan of Popeye that cartoon character who loved spinach. Well, lets say Popeye tricked me to having spinach almost everyday as kid and I still love it. This snack is a tribute to my all time favourite spinach hero Popeye and is packed with nutrition for your family and for kids.

Serves 4
Preparation time 10-15 minutes
Cooking time 10-15 minutes

  • 5-6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 teaspoon salt or as per taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoon grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup gram flour or besan
  • 1-2 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1/2 a cup chopped onions
In a mixing bowl beat the eggs until fluffy and then add salt and pepper and the chopped spinach. Now slowly fold in both the flour as well as the oats. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the cheese. Take a pan that can be used both in the gas stove and in the oven. I have used an aluminium pan but without any plastic handle. Heat the pan in the gas with a tablespoon of oil and pour the batter. Add the grated cheese on top and let the it sit in the gas in medium low heat for approximately 5 minutes. In the mean time preheat the oven at 180C. After 5 minutes in the gas, the sides will brown a little bit and the cheese will start to melt. At this point, shift the pan to the oven and bake it for another 10 minutes until cooked. You should now be able to cut the Eggetarian delight into any shape and size of your choice and serve it as a tea time snack or even lunch for children. Serve it with tomato ketchup or with some chaaiwalli chilli and tamarind chutney
