- [Turmeric] | [1 small spoon]
- [Salt, pepper, mixed herbs]
Add water to chickpeas flour and whisk well. The consistency shouldn’t be too thick or thin. You can add 4 table spoons of yogurt too but I usually do not use it as am Vegan. Add all grated and chopped vegetables, salt, spices, turmeric and pepper. Mix well. On a hot flat pan, spread about two big spoons of water. Shape into a big circle. Apply some oil (if your pan is non-stick, it is better to apply oil before pouring the batter) and cook really well on both sides. Be careful about the heat, your omelet could be burnt if the pan it too hot.Serve with butter or any dip of your choice.
