  1. Thanks. Made without oil. It looked different but taste was awesome.

    • Welcome Praju. Nice to know this.

  2. I tried tomato omellette and it has become one of my kids favourite thanks Dasana your blog is really very helpful 😊😊

    • welcome kavita. glad to know that kids are liking the tomato omelette. thanks for your positive feedback on recipes.

  3. Can we keep remaining batter in a fridge and use letter? Tomatoes and onions are already mixed in it

    • yes you can do this way. the batter might become slightly thin as the onions and tomato will leave water in it. if it becomes too thin, then you can add 1 to 2 tablespoon besan before making the tomato omelette.
