  1. Hi Hetal and Anuja,
    Is it possible to substitute half or all the amount of whole eggs with egg whites? I usually substitute 2 egg whites for a whole egg in omelets and scrambled egg recipes to cut down on the cholesterol, but didn’t know if I could do the same with quiche. Thanks!

    1. Hi Malavika,

      We have not tried it with egg whites, but it should work. Basically, the eggs are the binding force in quiche and even egg whites do the trick. I would probably not eliminate all of the yolks the first time you try it.

  2. hey guys can I use cream cheese and some other Shredded Cheese instead of cottage cheese.For two people how many eggs do u suggest.


    1. Hi Rizna,
      You can omit the cottage cheese and use any cheese you like. The cottage cheese is there to make it lighter. You can make half the amount shown for 2 people.

  3. Hi,

    Is this recipe to be made only in oven? The oven in our apartment does not work at all. Is there any other method to cook this dish? I am quite eager to try it out. Help please!!!

    Thanks for a yummy dish.

  4. I made broccoli quiche for brunch over the weekend and it was a hit! As a typical desi, I added a little crushed red pepper for spice and it was delicious! thanks for your recipes!

  5. Hi!!
    I really want to know that is there any substitute of cottage cheese? Would appreciate your reply!! 🙂


  6. Hi Hetal n Anuja,
    I have tried this recipe twice since I had read this. and came out really well both the times. One thing I would like to know. I’m going India next week, want to make this recipe thr for parents.I believe cottage cheese is nt gng to be available thr. Is thr any other substitute of cottage cheese?

  7. Hi Hetal & Anuja
    Came across this site of yours today & wow! it is just what I have been looking for. Thanks so v much – I a msure it will be a great help to people like me who cant cook instinctively.

  8. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    This recipe looks great. Can we use muffin pan to make smaller individual quiches instead of a large single one. What should be the temperature setting of the oven and for how long?


    1. The quiche in the muffin pans would look sooo cute! Great idea!
      We suggest that you keep the same temperature but reduce the amout of time to about 30-35 min. Allow the eggs to settle and firm up before you pop them out (very very important)!
      Send us a picture when you make them.

    1. Yes, zucchini sounds wonderful! we would suggest that you don’t cook it a whole lot because it will fall apart and become soggy. Add it into the pan in the last 2-3 minutes of cooking the broccoli.

  9. Hi Hetal and Anuja

    That was such a simple and filling recipe. Made it for dinner instead of brunch …. excellent …


  10. I tried it last evening..did not have added green pepper and turned out very good.Thanks for such wonderful recipes :).
