Paneer Spinach Omelet

I was going to roast the baby potatoes I boiled last night for breakfast, but it’s been a week and a half since I made paneer and the last of it needed to be used up. I did end up roasting a few of the potatoes but the omelet was the main event.

The ingredients for the omelet were:

  • chopped red onion
  • chopped and blanched fresh spinach
  • eggs
  • paneer
  • dried fenugreek leaves (kasoori methi)
  • garlic paste
  • kosher salt
  • pinch of asafoetida

Flipping the omelet was a near disaster, which is why it ended up browned a bit more than I like.

The fenugreek leaves and the pinch of asafetida were all it took to give the omelet an ever so slight but discernible Indian flavor.

The oven roasted baby potatoes had been brushed with a mixture of olive oil and a store-bought curry leaf powder. The listed ingredients in the curry leaf powder were: Gram Dhall, Green Gram, Curry Leaf, Salt below 20%, Black Gram, Chilli, Pepper, Ghee.

      1. Wow! I am so envious of you. I am trying to grow this one curry leaf plant which I bring inside for the winter. I baby it so much but it has grown just a little bit in 2 years. Any tips on helping it grow?

      2. My plants are in for the winter too. I keep them next to a window. They only get about 30 minutes of direct sunlight because of the roof overhang so I shine a 60 watt Spot-Gro light on them. In the summer I keep them on the porch where they are shaded for much of the day. I make sure not to overwater them. Other than keeping them in large enough pots I’m not sure what the secret is. All the plants I have are clones from the original plant I bought 15 or 20 years ago.

      3. Thanks so much for the tip about the Spot-Gro light, Greg. Yes mine gets about 30 minutes of light in the winter too. In the summer, is it better to have them in partial shade than direct sunlight? I have my plant on the patio in the summer.

      4. I’ve had them in sun some years and they did fine once they recovered from the initial sunburn which can be quite traumatic for the plant. They need to be slowly acclimated to full sun exposure (that’s true of most plants that have been kept indoors).
