Some people like eggs but have to restrict their consumption because of cholesterol problems. Here is a fully cholesterol-free omelette. It’s also great for your fibre intake.


1 cup chickpea flour (aka besan)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon salt (preferably black salt)
2 cups water, or as required
Oil, as required to grease the pan and taste
Onions, coriander leaves and green chilli (all optional)
Other flavourings such as herbs or garlic powder (all optional)

You can also use wholemeal flour.

For gluten-free, replace the plain flour with rice flour.


Use a non-stick pan.

In a bowl, add the chickpea flour and plain flour with the salt and baking powder.

Give it a thorough mix. Add little water at first and then mix it well with a whisk. Break all the lumps until it forms a smooth paste. Keep adding water little by little until the batter is thin.

Grease a pan, using the oil as required, and spread the batter by moving the pan around. Cook the omelette on a medium flame. Once the upper surface dries out, flip it over.
