Tips and Tricks to make the BEST Tomato Omelette

  1. I don’t eat Besan, How can I customise this Tomato Omelette? If you don’t Besan, sub it with a mixture of Wholewheat flour, rice flour and some Millet flour. Of course, it won’t be Gluten free then.
  2. Can I skip Onion in this? Yes, definitely. One can substitute it with grated cabbage / carrot. 
  3. Can I skip Tomato ketchup ? That is the key to this Omelette, please don’t skip this.  
  4. Can I add curd / yogurt to the batter? This batter is entirely vegan, but if you prefer you can add 4-5 TBSP curd / buttermilk and reduce the water proportionately.

    Hey, this is really a good one! We call them chilla (pancakes) but have never used tomato ketchup. The flour options are informative. I am quite eager to try out this recipe. The superb images justify the recipe.
