  1. Take a Large mixing bowl and add chickpea flour/besan to it. Make sure that the flour is fine and has no lumps. If required then sieve it.

  2. Add Salt +Black Pepper+Baking soda+Baking Powder to the flour and mix well with a wire whisk. Slowly pour water and add 1 tsp oil to it. Mix ingredients with wire whisk to make sure that there are no lumps formed. Beat the batter with whisk wire for 1 minute to activate the baking soda and baking powder. It is kind of RUNNY BATTER. Set it aside for 4-5 minutes till you chop your vegetables and gather other ingredients. When ready to cook, keep the batter and chopped vegetables ready.

  3. Take a non stick or ceramic coated pan that is 5-6 inches in diameter. Put the pan on medium heat and then Grease the pan lightly with with cooking oil spray or with cooking brush. Once hot, add 1/3 or 1/2 cup of batter to the pan. Sprinkle the finely chopped vegetables on top of the batter.

  4. Now cover the omelette with a lid and lower the heat to lower medium. Let it cook while covered for about 1&1/2 minutes.

  5. Remove the lid. Spray the top of the omelette with some oil or use cooking brush to spread some oil on top.

  6. Carefully loosen the edges with a wooden flat spatula and flip carefully to cook on the other side. Let it cook for another minute or so from the other side. Do not press it while it cooks or the fluff will be gone.

  7. The Vegan Omelette is ready. Take it out and finish the rest of the batter likewise. It will give you 3-4 Vegan Omelettes. A good tip is to clean the pan with a wet paper towel after each omelette so that it doesn't burn. Serve it with some SPICY GREEN CHUTNEY or Ketchup or PICO DE GALLO/SALSA.
