Spinach omelette recipe – Healthy and tasty palak omelet under 10 minutes. Loaded with protein, iron and vitamins this spinach omelet makes for a amazing breakfast. It can be served alone or with bread, chapati or even as a side in an Indian meal.
Indian spinach known as palak is often used to make Dal palak, Palak paneer, Palak rice and veggie stir fry recipes. Sometimes my kids’ are too bored with the repeated Palak Recipes I make. So for a change I make this palak omelet for their breakfast.
This will be loved even by fussy kids as it tastes good and is appealing. You can also make a sandwich or a Kathi roll using this.
I have not used cheese here, but you can use it. For a cheesy spinach omelet just add some grated mozzarella cheese towards the end & fold it half way until it melts.
