Pyttipanna/Pytt i panna - Our Breakfast today

Pyttipanna, also pytt i panna, Swedish for "leftovers in pan," is a hodge-potch of food similar to hash.

Those of you who have visited IKEA store will know about this dish very nicely, since it is in one of their recipes they serve. This dish was originally made from leftovers of past meals but now it is far more common to prepare pyttipanna from prime ingredients. Frozen pyttipanna of many varieties can be bought in almost every Swedish supermarket.

Many variants of the dish exist, amongst other reasons to cater to the growing vegetarian and vegan population. If you have mixed veggies lying in your freezer or fresh ones, they can be used to make this as a breakfast or snack.

Serves 2 people
Cooking and Preparation Tme - 15 mins approx

Ingredients :

Mixed Veggies - 2 cups frozen or fresh ( I used fresh baby carrots, beans, potato(1) cut into small pieces and corn (frozen))
Onion - 1 small finely chopped
Pepper- 1/4 tbsp or less according to your spice level
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Method :
  1. First microwave the potato with skin peeled diced into small pieces for 4-5 mins and keep aside. 
  2. Then heat oil in a non stick pan and fry the chopped onions till they change color.
  3. Now add mixed veggies except the diced potatoes and saute.
  4. Add salt, pepper and saute.
  5. Fry for few mins and then add the potatoes and saute well.
  6. Cook covered and saute for every 3-4 mins.
  7. Fry till all the water from the veggies evaporate and become dry.
  8. You may add little salt if its needed and fry the potatoes till they change color for good taste.
  9. Serve hot as breakfast or snack.

Hi Vaishali, I thought you are another Vaishali I know! :D

Great blog. In southern US, we make a similar dish called "Hash browns", literally means Potato browned iun skillet but we add lot of veggies too, whatever is available. Looks great and colorful, nice to eat on cold winter day! :))
