Eggs for breakfast is a global solution, but if you’re a vegetarian, choosing what to eat every morning can be a little bit tougher. But celebrity Chef Ranveer Brar has come up with a way that nobody has to miss out on the delicious experience. The Eggless Omelette.

With all the texture and flavour of the OG, this recipe takes the traditional egg omelette and replaces the egg protein with gram flour. Although similar to the Gujarati Besan Chilla, it has a thicker consistency and fluffier finish thanks to the addition of baking soda which helps it to more naturally replicate the experience of an egg omelette.
