We just can't seem to have enough of eggs, especially for breakfast. Easily accessible and easier to make, eggs are our go-to food for the kick of proteins and good taste to start our day with. Apart from boiled eggs, an omelette is the most common eggs recipe all over the world that makes for a satiating meal. It gives us room to experiment by adding veggies like onions, tomatoes and spices like green chillies. In our attempt to make things even more interesting, we added paneer to our omelette, and it turned out to be so good, it left us wondering why we didn't think of this before.
Paneer (or cottage cheese) is another protein-rich food that we love to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even for snacks. The double bonanza of proteins makes this omelette with both eggs and paneer, a must-try. Grated paneer is added to the omelette to make it creamier, cheesier and softer.
