It is always satisfying to have eggs in any recipe. Hope you all agree with me. This Bengal Gram Omelette tastes good along with hot Rice.

This recipe is made mostly by Muslims. I had it at an Ifthar party at Ameena Aunty’s place. I liked it a lot. Some recipes are simple to make, using limited ingredients, but nevertheless taste unique.

This can be made easily by Bachelors and also if you want to make some special dish with eggs.

1.This Omelette requires a little more Oil to make it fluffy and tasty or else it becomes dry and hard.

  1. Cook the Omelette only up to 90% and fold it into half . Remaining cooking will be done with the steam. Do not overcook it, or it becomes too dry.

Bengal Gram:

1.Soak Bengal Gram for 1 hour before cooking, so that it gets cooked softly.

Other Tips:

  1. Cook the Omelette and curry for only 2-3 minutes. If you over cook it, it becomes hard on cooling. Eggs will absorb the excess moisture from Bengal Gram.

3.You can add boiling water and a little salt to make it loose, if it becomes hard.

4.You can use 2tbsp Tamarind pulp if you want a tangy taste.
