  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 450g potato, coarsely grated and any excess liquid squeezed out



    The world's favourite root vegetable, the potato comes in innumerable varieties. A member of…

  • 6 medium eggs, beaten
  • 100g frozen pea
  • small pack coriander, roughly chopped
  • mango chutney, natural yogurt and naan bread, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan and fry the onion for about 10 mins over a medium heat until golden. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook for 1-2 mins.

  2. Next, add the grated potatoes and cook for 5-8 mins, stirring occasionally. You want the potatoes to soften, but also catch a little and turn golden in patches. Season the eggs, then pour into the pan with the peas and most of the coriander, swirling to coat the potato mixture. Cook for 1 min more, then transfer to the oven for 10 mins until the eggs have set. Sprinkle with the remaining coriander and serve with mango chutney, natural yogurt and naan bread, if you like.

This is a really tasty dish. Easy to make if not to get out of the pan! Very nice cold and can be eaten the following day, Recommended.

This spicy recipe made a change from the usual frittata but best eaten on the day it is made. I had some leftover in the fridge and it turned slightly grey the next day, probably due to the spices leaking into the onion. Tasted okay though!

Recommended- tasty and easy. I used ground coriander - 'curry powder' is a bit vague. It complemented the fresh coriander flavour.

Hi Rebecca. A simple salad would be nice, or perhaps some warm naan breads and a dollop of natural yogurt, or try this simple Indian salad recipe:
