Vegetarian Omelette,Besan ka Cheela

Egg-less Tomato Omelette

Tomato omelette is also known as Besan ka Cheela in North India.  This pancake is not restricted to any particular region in India and is available in most places especially Udupi Hotels prominently.

Generally, when my mom made tomato omelettes she served with homemade tomato sauce.

Tomatoes are rich in umami components lend a delicious flavour to this gram flour pancake. The batter is spiced up with typical Indian herbs and spices.

The main ingredients of Vegetarian Tomato omelette are tomatoes, onions, besan/chickpea flour, rava/sooji. I prefer to use rava/sooji to rice flour you may use rice flour instead.
