Potato Peas Omelette

Today I am posting a healthy as well as easy evening snack recipe... Normally my kid don't trouble me much while eating... I strongly believe that by forcing we cant make the kid to eat... either they will start hating that item or start troubling for eating itself... I always try to make the food as per her taste and preference only. That is less spicy, less oil and colorful. It doesn't mean like I always succeed feeding her...Sometimes it is depending on her mood also. She used to say a very strong 'no' too. This time she said no for Egg during lunch. I didn't want to force her really, but its been a week since she had egg. When I was thinking how to make her eat, this idea came .

"Potato Peas Omelette"...  it was really not looking like an omelette. When i served this to my daughter by seeing the shape, she asked, "Is this a pizza?". I had no other option than saying "YES"... She happily finished her plate without asking furthermore questions.

Here is the simple recipe.

It can be done even with other veggies too. The choice of veggies are purely our choice only. Can be done with leftover veggies (porial) too.
Chopped Onions also can be added while sauteing veggies.
