Zucchini Omlette / Kabaklı Kaygana

Kaygana

Zucchini Omlette is something between an omlette and a pancake. Although at first sight it might make you think it is an omlette or a pancake, you might be impressed to learn that it dates back to the Ottoman. Nowadays it is more common in the Northern Turkey Region.

More often it is served at breakfast, but you can serve it as a side dish or as a treat too. You can do without zucchini and put other ingredients; such as chocolate, honey or even anchovy or spinach. Read the recipe below for details. You just mix all the ingredients to obtain a cake mixture like texture.

Then start frying. You can decide on the size; either big or small. I personally prefer to make small ones; as it is easier to flip and the middle part always get cooked enough too.

Kaygana3Cooking with lid closed is a good idea too. When you cook with closed lid, you will notice that your zucchini omlettes will rise more.
