Tomato Omelet

One of my favorite breakfast… Tomato omelet with bread & butter. I think in most of the Maharashtrian people knows about this Veg omelet. Some people called it as 'tomatoche Dhirde' that means tomato pancake. My Aai adds not only besan for this but also rice flour and whole wheat flour to make this healthy. So anybody who doesn't know about it must try this vegetarian omelet in Shravan. The important thing is you should eat it when it is hot.


Tomatoes - 2-3

Gram flour (besan) - 1/2 cup

Rice flour - 1/4 cup

Whole wheat flour - 1/4 cup

Onion sliced - 1 medium

Grated ginger - 1 inch

Garlic - 4-5 cloves

Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Ajwain - 1/4 teaspoon

Chopped coriander - 2 teaspoon

Oil - 2-3 tablespoon

Salt to taste.

Cut tomatoes in 3-4 pieces. Now grind tomatoes , onion, ginger, garlic in the mixer to a fine paste. Take the paste in a big bowl and add all the three flours. Then chilli powder, turmeric powder, ajwain, salt, chopped coriander and mix it nicely. Now the consistency of the batter should be like slightly thick than the dosa batter. Now heat a non stick tava. It should not be very hot. Grease it with 1/4 teaspoon of oil. Pour a ladle full batter and spread it in circular direction like dosa. It should not very thin or very thick like pancakes. Keep a lid on it and let it cook. Now turn it and cook it from other side. It should have slightly brown colour. Serve hot with brown bread and butter. The combination tastes amazing.
