Tomato Omelette

This is an omelette without egg !! I don't why its called an omelette, but that really doesn't matter, because its really simple, fast and tasty.
Its one of those quick-fix dosas. I make a whole lot of these easy, non-fussy dosas where there is no need to soak, grind, ferment...just mix ingredients and you're all set.

This morning, I was bored of the usual oats / cereal drill, and remembered that I hadn't made tomato omelettes in a real long time.
I have always had this at home, but there was this one time that I had it in a 'Kamath' restuarant. For the uninitiated, this is a very popular chain of resturants down south, especially in Karnataka - non-fussy, clean, vegetarian, total value for money resturants. At this Kamath restuarant in Bangalore, they serve tomato omelette with toast and tomato ketchup. That was the first time I had it with ketchup and it was actually a very nice combination.

At home, I usually have it with ketchup, coriander chutney or molaga podi

What you need -
(this is for about 8 omelettes)

2 cups besan (chick pea flour)
1/2 cup rava (semolina)
3 tomatoes chopped
1 onion chopped

2 green chillies chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder

What you do with it -

Mix the besan and rava in enough water to make a thickish batter
Add the other ingredients and mix well
Add a teaspoon (or less) oil on a tava and spread the batter starting from the outside. Swirl the tava around to get the batter to move and fill in the gaps
Cover till it turns brown on one side
Flip over and fry till done
Serve with ketchup / green chutney / raita / garlic chutney or molaga podi

Hi archana,
this is similiar to something Gujaratis make called pulla or pudla - essentially a Besan dosa. Looks really delicious,

thanks for sending this in to JFI Chickpea!
best,
ms

I make something similar too, and love the flavor of besan anyway:) The no. of Kamaths we have in Bangalore- one just cannot miss it. I know of two here in Mumbai too but they are downtown! Thanks for sending this to FIC:)
