Healthy Omelette with Bengal gram leaves
Bengal gram leaves or chickpea leaves may not be popular choices when it come to green leafy vegetables, but they are equally rich in nutrients, if not more. They do not have a strong flavour hence goes well with young ones too. An all time favourite of my family - humble omelette made more healthy & delicious, in this recipe of mine. Try it, you'll not be disappointed!

Add the chopped onions and tomatoes, peppers & saute for a minute.
Pour the beaten eggs, tilt the pan slightly, swirl the egg so that it covers the pan.
When the omlette begins to cook and firm up, but is still a bit raw in the centre, add the grated cheese and cook for another couple of minutes till the egg is set.
Loosen up the edges with a spatula and fold it into half. Slide on to a plate and serve.
