Peas and tomato Frittata

Simple and yummy...its like a vacation in an omlette :)
125 gms fresh peas
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 big onion chopped
1 garlic ,crushed
125 gms chopped tomato or cherry tomatoes ,halved
6 eggs
2 tbsp chopped mint
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the peas in a pan of lightly salted boiling water,for 3 mins..
Rinse in cold water,keep aside.
Heat oil in a non stick skillet and fry the onions and garlic for 2 mins.
Add the chopped tomatoes and the peas...fry for a couple of mins( I added a little salt here...its your choice if you would like to)
Beat the eggs with mint,salt and pepper,and pour over the frying veggies....
Add chopped coriander leaves/and some chilly flakes( completely optional )
Cover and cook on medium low flame for 3 to 4 mins or until almost set.
Transfer to a preheated grill and cook further for another 3 mins or till lightly browned.(I completely skipped this step....just did well with the stove)
Slightly cool ,slice into wedges..serve as a light meal ,with some salads and bread ....
Its a v.spongy and fluffy egg dish and the flavours you can add to it is completely your choice...its very versatile n picks on the flavor well...
I plan to add grated potato, chives,mushroom,chicken shreds and crispy fried my next trial....

Going going goneeeee
