What do I need to make this?

The only special ingredient that you need to make these chickpea omelettes, are besan flour a.k.a. chickpea flour. Besan flour, is an ingredient that is widely used in Indian culture. You can buy the Besan flour a.k.a. chickpea flour from your local Indian food market or from Amazon. I usually buy mine from Amazon because I don’t have any close by Indian markets.

When I was creating the recipe for these vegan omelettes. I went through a mission, trying to find this chickpea flour. I went everywhere! For some reason, the thought didn’t cross my mind that I could just buy it from Amazon. I mean, they have everything, what was I thinking?

So yeah, I went around my whole city, which was Philadelphia at the time and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally looked up different Indian markets and just started calling up places to see if they carried it. I managed to get in contact, with one Indian market that did have it in stock. That market was 35 minutes away, which may seem like a stretch for one ingredient but when I have my mindset on a recipe I will go to the ends of the earth to find a particular ingredient😆.

Long story short, I picked up my mom for company and off we went on this chickpea flour finding expedition and I’m so glad I did because the outcome is delicious. Now I never buy this flour in store anymore, I only ever purchase it online. If you’re making this, I suggest you do the same unless you know for certain you have an Indian market nearby. Just to save yourself a bit of time and trouble.
