  1. This looks like a version of the fritata! You got it quite thick too with just two eggs - I always end up adding 4 to 5 eggs to get that sort of thickness.
    That was a nice share!

    1. Since I have used a small nonstick pan 5.1/2 inch diameter, hence the thickness.

  2. looks fab Sneha! love all the stuff gone into it.
