Sprouted Green Chana(Bengal Gram) Omlette

This recipe is for busy people, can make this in minutes, and have it either for breakfast or for lunch. This can also be packed for lunch boxes for kids and adults alike. We have the goodness of eggs, Chana and other aromatics cooked in a single frying pan. It is filling and takes care of your hunger pangs for almost 3 to 4 hours. I,

ideally make this for lunch, whenever I am on a cleaning spree or repotting my plants or I am busy making my usual pastes to store in the fridge and freezer.

Serves 1


  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1/2 a cup of any sprouts (I used green bengal gram sprouts)
  3. 1 small onion finely chopped
  4. 1/2 tomato finely chopped
  5. 1 green chilli finely chopped
  6. 1 tsp of finely chopped coriander leaves
  7. 1/4 tsp freshly grated ginger
  8. 1 tsp of any oil, ghee or butter
  9. Salt to taste.


  1. Put the frying pan on medium flame. Add oil or ghee or butter.
  2. Once hot, add the sprouts, lower the flame and cover and cook for a minute.
  3. In the meantime, break two eggs in a bowl, mix well, add salt and beat well.
  4. Mix all the finely chopped ingredients and mix well with a fork.
  5. Remove the lid of the pan and add the beaten egg mix.
  6. Cover and cook on low flame for a minute or until the egg mix gets cooked. Lift with a spatula and check for a golden crust.
  7. Flip the omlette and let it cook on the other side for 10 seconds.
  8. Serve it hot or pack it in a lunch box when cold.
  9. You can have it with tomato sauce, sweet chilli sauce, green chilli sauce but the best sauce till date, is the combination of light soy sauce and rice vinegar with fresh chopped green chillies.
  10. This is more or less like Fritatta, an easier one though.
