  • Saute the ingredients.
    Chop the onions, tomatoes, and mixed bell peppers. Season them with mixed herbs, curry powder, sea salt, and stock cube. Then, saute them in the oil for 3 minutes. Set these aside and save the oil for later.
  • Combine them with the eggs.
    In a large bowl, add eggs, chicken hot dogs, sauteed vegetables, and steamed yam. Mix them thoroughly.

    Reheat the oil from the sauteed vegetables and fry the egg mixture over medium low heat. To cook the other side, place a plate on the pan and flip it over. Slide the frittata back into the pan to fry.
