Steamed Potato Omelette

So I looked around my kitchen the other day, trying to figure out what I could have for breakfast slash lunch (brunch)...and after only finding some eggs, pieces of leftover veggies, some leftover boiled potatoes, and some leftover moin moin leaves (ewe eeran), something came to my mind.

So I decided to combine all these ingredients and steam-cooked in the moin moin leaves. It was simple, easy, fast, and definitely different. In addition, I determined it was healthy and CHEAP...bearing in mind that everything I used in the dish is leftovers found in the fridge. But above all the dish was tasty and delicious.

We tend to underestimate the versatility of our traditional food wrap (ewe eeran). Ewe eeran is really useful, and I believe its got something to do with that additional flavour you get, that you can't really attribute to any of the other ingredients. 

So this dish proves that ewe eeran is ideal for steam-cooking a range of foods, not just moin moin....

This dish is a new discovery for me, and I will definitely be making more of it in future.

Give it try.
