Chickpea Flour (Besan)

Chickpea flour, also known as garbanzo bean flour or besan, is a common ingredient used in Indian cuisine. It is high in protein, fiber, and nutrients such as folate, iron, and magnesium. For this recipe, you will need 1 1/2 – 2 cups of chickpea flour.

Wheat Flour

Wheat flour is added to the mixture to give it the perfect texture. You will need 1/2 cup of wheat flour along with chickpea flour.


This recipe calls for several spices such as turmeric, ground cumin, dried dill and garlic paste. Turmeric gives the omelette/misi roti its characteristic yellow color while adding a subtle flavor. Ground cumin enhances the taste of the dish while dried dill gives it an earthy aroma. Garlic paste adds a savory taste to the dish.


To add some texture and extra flavor to omelette/misi roti, we recommend adding shredded carrot and chopped onion. These veggies add some nutrition to this delicious dish that is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Butter (Optional)

Butter can be used for greasing while cooking your vegan omelette/misi roti on a hot skillet or pan to get that crispy texture on the surface. If you want to keep this recipe dairy-free or vegan-friendly you can use any plant-based oil instead of butter.

Here’s how to make vegan omelette/misi roti recipe at home:

Step 1: Mix the batter

In a large bowl, I add 1 1/2 cups of chickpea flour or also known as garbanzo bean flour. Then, I take 1 cup of wheat flour and add it to the same bowl. I mix the two flours together until they are well combined. Next, I add my spices which are 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of garlic paste, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of dried dill. After mixing the spices into the flours, I gradually add enough water to form a smooth and thick batter.

Step 2: Add the veggies

I finely dice 1 cup of onion and grate 1/2 cup of carrot. Then, I mix them into the batter until they are well-distributed.

Step 3: Cook on stovetop

I heat a skillet over medium-high heat, melting a tablespoon of butter in it. Then, I ladle about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter to make each misi roti/vegan omelette. I cook each side until it’s golden brown and crispy for about five minutes per side.

Step 4: Make-ahead, storing and reheating

You can make these ahead of time and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. To reheat, you can use a toaster oven or stove-top method until they are heated thoroughly.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Once you have made your vegan omelette/misi roti, you can store it in the fridge for three to four days. Make sure to store it in an airtight container or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminium foil. This will keep it from drying out and absorbing any unwanted odors.

When reheating, there are a few options. You can heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until heated through. Another option is to reheat it on a non-stick skillet for about two minutes on medium heat, flipping once. This will bring back the crispiness that makes this dish so delicious.

If you want to make this recipe ahead of time, prepare the batter ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours before making the omelette/misi roti. This allows the flavors to develop and marry together properly.

When making flatbreads like misi roti, you can freeze them instead of refrigerating them. Simply place them in an airtight freezer-safe container and lay small pieces of parchment paper between each layer. They will last up to three months in the freezer.

To reheat frozen misi roti, remove as many as needed and leave them out at room temperature for a few hours until thawed. Then, heat them on a dry skillet on low heat for about one minute on each side or until heated through.

Overall, knowing how to store, reheat, and make-ahead your vegan omelette/misi roti will help ensure that every bite is just as delicious as the first time you made it.

Now that you are ready to make the perfect vegan omelette/misi roti recipe, let me give you some tips for the best possible results.

First and foremost, it’s important to accurately measure all of your ingredients. Mismeasuring can throw off the overall balance of flavors and texture in your dish. So, make sure you have the correct measuring spoons and cups before getting started.

Another important tip is to not overmix the batter. This can cause gluten strands to form and make the mixture too dense. You want your batter to be smooth and pourable for that perfect consistency.

I also suggest cooking the omelette/misi roti on medium heat using a non-stick pan. This will ensure that it cooks evenly without sticking or burning. Once you pour the batter into the pan, allow it to cook undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes before flipping it over.

To add some extra flavor to your omelette/misi roti, try adding some additional spices or seasonings such as crushed red pepper flakes, chopped fresh herbs like parsley or chives, or nutritional yeast.

Finally, always serve your omelette/misi roti hot off the stove to keep its crispy texture intact. If you must store leftovers, keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat them on a non-stick pan or toaster oven for best results.

With these tips in mind, you’ll have absolutely no trouble achieving perfection with this vegan omelette/misi roti recipe every time!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this vegan omelette/misi roti recipe is a must-try for anyone looking to add some spice and variety to their breakfast or dinner recipes. The combination of chickpea flour, wheat flour and spices creates a unique texture and flavor that you won’t find in any other dish.

Vegan Omelette/Misi Roti Recipe

I found this recipe and modified it to my tastes. I can understand how it could be called an omelette but I think it is more of a roti. After much discussion with friends who ate, liked and commented, the verdict is misi roti but I thought I'd include the orginal title so vegans could find it and enjoy it as well. It is also gluten-free which is a big plus.
