Spinach and Capsicum ( Bell pepper) Egg White Omelette

Sunday! Wow..One of my favorite days of the week. Still remember going to IHop almost every sunday morning (When in NJ) and having my favorite Omelette. I hear most people saying bell pepper here in US but I was so used to saying capsicum back in India. When I came to US, I saw many people correcting me when I said capsicum. I still don't understand what is the difference.Its like po-tah-to po-teh-to(Well at least to me). Anyway Here is my Spinach and Capsicum..duh..Bell pepper Egg White Omelette with a little desi dash to it.

Baby Spinach- Finely chopped 1/2 cup
Bell pepper - 1
Onion -1
Egg Whites- Lucerne Egg whites or any brand 1.5 Cups OR Eggs - 4
Salt- as per taste
Green chilli -2
Turmeric -pinch
Pam oil

Chop the onion in julienne style. Heat a pan and spray oil on it. Add chopped onions, chopped bell pepper, finely chopped green chillies and once they are semi cooked, add Spinach and fry for 2 minutes.

Add salt, turmeric and fry for another minute or two. Spread the veggies through out the pan

Pour Egg whites and tilt the pan on all sides so the egg whites also spread through out the pan.

(If using whole eggs, beat the eggs and pour them on veggies) Adjust salt according to taste.

Close a lid and let it cook for 2 minutes on medium-low flame.

Open the lid and spray oil if needed. Cut the Omelette into 4 pieces to make it easier to turn around.

Turn to the other side and let it cook for 2 more minutes.

Enjoy it with Toasted bread/ Chapathi and Kids love it with Ketchup.
