In recent years-since more people are looking for gluten free dishes, I thought it would be a good idea to share this recipe.This dish is very common among Gujarati Community-this dish is called Pudla-or Puda. This is a spicy savory Breakfast. I have called it Tortilla because it looks very similar to Spanish tortilla.
Chickpea flour is used in many dishes throughout India.
You can make this item just plain or with Onions, Tomatoes, Cilantro etc.
I like the one with added vegetables.
Very simple and quick. This recipe makes 4 Omelets. Chick pea flour is filling.
More and more people are now aware of Chick peas flour. You can buy this flour in an Indian Market easily-this flour may be available in specialty markets where the bulk items and health related items are sold.
In this dish I have used chopped jalapeno about 1/2 as I like the green pepper.
