Wondering what breakfast you can whip up quickly before starting your day’s work? Or an evening snack? How about making a quick omelette but without eggs?
MasterChef India runner-up Neha Deepak Shah just shared an easy recipe for eggless omelette on Instagram. The omelette is similar to cheela, except it is much thinner and softer. And you can also add a stuffing of your choice.
“The way this is different from a cheela or a pudla is the consistency of the batter, at least in our house, we make pudla / cheela batter thicker. Texture wise, this is different & softer,” Shah wrote on Instagram.

Yes, you read it right ! This is an eggless ‘omlette’ & it is soooo delicious. Needs basic ingredients, can be made vegan if you skip the butter & paneer & takes only about 5 mins to make this. Whenever I out of ideas for breakfast, it is my GO TO dish. It is similar to a Besan Chilla or Pudla, just that I love the batter to be thin & that is what makes it soft and soooooo good ! The way this is different from a Cheela or a pudla is the consistency of the batter, atleast in our house, we make pudla / cheela batter thicker. Texture wise, this is Different & softer. The texture is similar to the ‘Omlette’ & so it has been called so – approved by my ‘EGGETARIAN’ friends.
