5) Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes till egg is cooked . If using gas stove than cook for 6-8 min than cover the pan's lid for 5 min or until the cheese melts on low flame & than remove the lid to let the egg cook & gets crip for another 3-4 minutes(keep a check).

I used a big pan of so the frittata turned out to be thin use small pan to make thick one .For this 9*9 pan will be good enough.

Kunika--that is a lovely breakfast. I wish I had some of it right now. Frittatas are one of my favorite things to eat.
