In India, a savory pancake made with chickpea flour and spices, known as pudla, is commonly served for breakfast. It resembles an omelet, especially when you add gelly, water-soaked chia seeds for an extra “eggy” texture, like in this recipe. It’s a gluten-free, egg-free vehicle for yummy vegetables, and it’s chock full of plant-based protein and fiber.

Soak chia seeds in 1/4 cup water until seeds swell and gelatinize, 10-15 minutes.
MISE EN PLACE
• Peel and dice onion.
• Roughly chop spinach.
• Chop parsley.
• Place a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/4 cups water, almond milk, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
• When liquid comes to a simmer, whisk in grits. Return to a simmer, stirring continuously.
• Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and cover pot.
While grits cook:
• In a bowl combine flour, cumin, curry powder, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and parsley.
• Whisk in 3/4 cup water to create a pancake-like batter.
• Whisk in chia seeds with liquid.
• In a non-stick pan, heat 1 teaspoon cooking oil. Add onion. Cook, stirring, until translucent, 2-3 minutes.
• Fold in spinach. Cook until just tender, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
• Wipe out pan. Add 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil. When hot, add half of batter to pan.
• Cook for 1-2 minutes, until set on the bottom. Flip omelet.
• Top 1 half with half of spinach mixture. Fold omelet over to create a half-moon shape. Transfer to a plate.
Repeat step 6 with 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil, remaining batter and remaining spinach mixture.
• Garnish omelets with sriracha and crunchy mix.
• Serve with grits, and enjoy!
