Indian Omelette ~ Without Eggs
Breakfast for us (Punjabis) means Stuffed Parathas , Bread Jam Butter , Toast and Sandwich for weekdays and anything fried like Bread Pakoras , fritters , Spring rolls , Aloo Poori , etc on weekends. This is the regular habit but sometimes I get bored of it and deviate from usual habit and make something different . At that time this eggless omelette will be one of my favorite dish apart from few others. Sometimes I like to make it stuffed with sautéed mushrooms , or paneer filling to make it more delicious. So let’s start the recipe. Yum
