Besan Omelette

I decided to take the basic recipe and jazz it up a bit more. I added way more cilantro and garlic, used garlic-chili sauce instead of fresh chilis, plus I thought green peppers would make a nice addition. Just before cooking, I also added a splash of lemon juice and some cumin.

And this is how the cooked version looked.

I made the full recipe and ended up with a few "omelettes". The first one was too thick (apparently I forgot the consistency of yogurt) so I watered down the batter before cooking the rest. I think, in total, I used almost 2 cups of water.

I think this is a great recipe to play with. Next time, I'd love to add different spices and vegetables to create different flavours and textures. And there will be a next time. The boy's comment when asked if he'd eat it again: "Sh*t, yeah."

Yeah, that yogurt direction was weird. I wish the recipe had given me a ballpark figure, and then said "you might need a little more or less."

What about an asian dish to celebrate Asian/Chinese New Year. I've been wanting to experiment with dumplings, so we can make something like that or a dim sum recipe of some kind. I just got back from shopping in Chinatown, so i have dumplings on the brain....Thoughts?
