  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water


  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp black salt aka kala namak


  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 1 small onion


  • Prepare the fillings. If you use zucchini, shred it or cut it thinly. Dice the onions and paprika or any other vegetables of your choice.
  • Add all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. Then add just a splash of water to get a very thick batter and break all the lumps out.
  • Add the rest of the water and fillings and mix to combine.
  • Heat up a pan. You will need a nonstick pan if you don't want to use any oil. Pour the batter in and cover. You can also make two smaller omelets, depending on the size of your pan.
  • Cook covered for 5-8 minutes on low heat. When the top gets dry, flip it around and cook on the other side for another 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness.
  • Flip it with a wet plate. The easiest way to flip it is to put a wet plate over your pan and turn it upside down. Because the plate is wet you can just slide it back in.
  • Add fresh parsley, basil, spring onions or any garnish of your choice. Sprinkle a bit of black salt for extra eggy flavor and serve.


  • The more vegetables you use, the more moist the omelette will turn out.
