I'm not a big breakfast person at all. But lazy Sunday mornings are ideal for a nice relaxed breakfast. Tomato omelette is a popular Indian vegetarian breakfast food. Frankly, I had never ever heard of it until my parents moved to the city of Pune. I first tried it at my favorite udipi joint, Vaishali, and really liked it. So this Sunday morning I made tomato omelettes for my in-laws and husband. Although I find chickpea flour quite heavy, its o.k if you eat just one of these. Its a good breakfast meal to make for your vegan/vegetarian friends. Go ahead and try one of these.
Ingredients (makes 4-6)
2 cups chick pea flour/Besan
2 tblsp tomato paste
one medium onion chopped
One medium tomato chopped
chopped green chillies
salt to taste
Add tomato paste to flour. Add cold water and stir to make a thick paste. Then add tomatoes, onion, cilantro and green chillies. Add more water to make the batter more like pancake batter.
Heat a non-stick pan with some oil. Ladle in the batter to form a pancake.
Cover and cook on medium heat. Flip and cook till both sides are golden brown. Serve hot with ketchup and butter.
