Recipe Ingredients for Palak Paneer Omelet

4 eggs
4 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp cumin seed
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt
300 g frozen spinach
100 g nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 tsp ghee

Recipe Directions for Palak Paneer Omelet

  1. In a dry skillet, toast your cumin seeds. Grind in a mortar and pestle along with your cayenne pepper flakes.

  2. Cook the frozen spinach until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  3. In the same skillet, add your chopped garlic and the ghee, and cook the garlic for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Do not let the garlic burn.

  4. Add the spinach and the cumin to the garlic, combine, and cook 2-3 minutes to release more liquid. Add the drained cottage cheese and combine.

  5. Stir in the beaten eggs. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally using a folding motion, until mostly cooked (they'll continue to cook after being removed from the pan, and will be perfect on the plate). Serve hot.
