Vegetable Omelette

DSCN3160

I said I send fruit as snacks for my son – I didn’t say he finishes it off everyday. On the days the snack comes back half full, I present them as fruit pancakes the next day.

Luckily for me, he has been quite a good kid snack-wise for a while now. So the apple pancakes will just have to wait.

Let’s turn our attention to this vegetarian omelette, which is also a good mess less lunch box choice. It makes a great quick fix evening snack/tiffin as well. The best part of this recipe is that it was sitting in the drafts folder, waiting to be used straight away!

Ingredients:

  • Gram flour/besan                :           1 cup
  • Onion                                         :           1 small, chopped finely
  • Tomato                                     :            1 small, chopped finely
  • Green Chillies                        :             1, sliced into thin rounds (optional)
  • Ginger                                       :             1/2″, chopped fine
  • Coriander leaves                  :            a handful, chopped finely
  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • a pinch of garam masala
  • Salt
  • Oil for making the omelette
  • Water                                          :            approx. 1.5 – 2 cups

Method:

  1. Clean and chop the onion, tomatoes, chilles and coriander leaves.
  2. Add the chopped vegetables to the besan. Tip in the salt, garam masala and turmeric powder. Add water and mix until you get a lump free batter. The consistency will be neither too thick nor too thin.
  3. Heat a tawa and add a tsp of oil. Pour the batter like you would make a dosa/pancake. Add a spoon of oil around the omelette.
  4. Wait for the top side to cook (the batter will become dry and the bottom will start to brown) and flip over and cook the other bottom.
  5. I served this stuffed between two slices of bread with a bit of mayonnaise, but this omelette tastes good on its own as well.
