Spring Fritatta

The swaying little green leaves, wild flowers and all the trees in their best attire. Spring makes my world looks like heaven. Am happy for the fact that i can see some more vegetables over the racks in the groceries. My kid is going out in the park and is well enjoying with some water works that he does there. It's a great relief for me as am not use to such cold harsh weather but am use to some 40 C to 45 C. Next month i go back my home for some days. Month of may is said to be a terrible time as the sun is at its peaks in India and almost everything is fuming. People find out several ways to adapt themselves to such hot weather. In kolkata it's worse as its hot and extremely humid, you keep sweating and you go tried in just minutes. Am getting myself ready to fight with summer. But before the war begins i just want to enjoy the spring here in Germany to its fullest. Therefore i prepared some spring fritatta.  As the name suggests all colorful vegetables goes into this dish.
