Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites and a tiny bit of yolk (may be one or 1/2 of the yolk, but it is optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chickpea flour
  • 1 medium sized Onion finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Coriander finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon Ginger garlic paste
  • ¼ teaspoon Garam masala powder
  • Sprinkle of salt to taste
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil to make omelette or use any oil as per your choice

Instructions

  • Separate egg whites and transfer to a bowl.
  • Combine all the ingredients other than oil and stir with a whisk until just blended (do not overbeat). All the ingredients should mix well and there should be no lumps.
  • Drizzle oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, reduce flame and pour some of the egg mixture into the pan and swirl it around to spread evenly.
  • Cook until edges begin to set (about 2 minutes) and the underside is slightly browned. Slide front edge of spatula between edge of omelet and pan.
  • Gently lift edge of omelet and flip over to let the other side cook.
  • Continue cooking until centre is just set (about 2 minutes).
  • Loosen omelet with a spatula and carefully slide omelet onto a plate. Enjoy!
  • Slide the omelet onto a pate and serve with bread, roti or Paratha. You can also have it as a side to rice and sambar or rasam.

Notes

1. Pour the egg mixture only after the pan has heated well. That means, if you add a drop of water, it should sizzle.
2. Whisk the egg mixture well, just before pouring it over the hot pan and do not cook on high flame.
3. You can sprinkle grated cheese over the omelet as soon as you remove it from the pan. The heat of the omelette, lightly melts the cheese.
4. You can add any other vegetables of your choice or shredded chicken.
5. The chickpea flour acts as a binding agent and also gives an unique taste and texture to the omelet.
6. Adjust spice levels with green chillies or red chilli powder to suit your taste.
