This acts like a pancake but should be paired with vegetables or whatever you’d usually add to an egg-based omelet. The spices are also completely up to your tastes, with turmeric and kala namak necessary for the color and flavor of the traditional preparation.

Directions

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together until thick but not lumpy, like pancake batter. Let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat a small nonstick pan and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, pour in the batter.
  3. Treat it like a pancake: When bubbles start to pop throughout the batter, flip it. Let brown on both sides before serving alone or with sautéed vegetables.
