  • 2 cup Besan -Chickpea flour/ gram flour
  • 1 small Onion chopped -Optional
  • 1 big Tomato or 2 small chopped
  • 2 green chillies finely chopped -Optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chilly powder -as per taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped Coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Roasted Cumin powder
  • salt as per taste
  • Water
  • Oil for shallow frying


  • Sift the flour.
  • In a bowl add all the ingredients and give it a quick stir.
  • Prepare the batter with water. The batter should not be too watery and not too thick. Dropping consistency.
  • Keep the mixture aside for 10 minutes. This helps the gram flour to hydrate.
  • Heat a non-stick pan or a cast iron Tawa. Apply a little bit of oil to the pan.
  • Once the pan is hot, Spread a spoon full of batter on the pan. Spread it in the shape of a dosa. Thickness may vary as per your needs. I do not make it thin and not too thick.
    Cooking of Vegan Chickpea Tomato Omelette
  • Cover and let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Once you see the top is cooked, the raw besan is no longer seen, drizzle 3-4 drops of oil on the side and on the top.
  • Flip and let it cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes.
  • Yummy Vegan chickpea Tomato Omelette is ready. Serve it with tomato ketchup or Coriander Chutney and Imli ki Chutney(Sweet & Sour Tamarind Chutney)


  • With the same batter, one can make Bread Pakoda. Check out the recipe for Non-Fried Bread Pakoda here.
  • The same batter I have added some Palak(Spinach) and it came out lovely, see the picture below. I just added a handful of palak leaves in this.
  • I lost my step by step pics, so will update it next time
