veg omelette recipewhile besan chilla or veg omelette recipe is extremely simple to prepare, yet i would like to share few tips and suggestions. firstly, i would heavily recommend to soak and rest the besan batter for minimum of 30 minutes. basically it helps besan to completely absorb water and you would not feel bloated after eating besan chilla. secondly, i would also like to highlight the importance of ajwain seeds or carom seeds in this recipe. typically any besan based dish would contain ajwain which helps in digestion. lastly, the consistency of the batter is very critical here and you can safely go with normal dosa batter or pouring consistency.
