  • 1 cup Besan / Chickpea flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to Taste
  • 1 /4 cup Carrots grated
  • 1 /4 cup Cabbage grated
  • 1 /4 cup Onions juliennes
  • 1 tbsp Butter

Other Ingredients for the Toast

  • 4 no Bread Slices
  • Mayonnaise
  • 2 Cheese Slices
  • Lettuce Leaves
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • 2 tsp Sugar I skipped though this is a must as per the recipe


For the Vegetarian Omelette

  • In a bowl, take the besan, salt, and pepper, slowly add water to get a slightly thick batter.
  • Chop the vegetables finely and add to the bowl.
  • Heat a nonstick pan with butter and pour the batter into it swirl. Top with vegetables and simmer till its cooked.
  • Flip to the other side and cook well. Each one takes about 5 mins on low flame. Keep it aside.

To assemble the Gilgeori Toast

  • Heat a griddle or tawa with butter and toast the bread well till golden.
  • Remove to a plate and start layering it.
  • Divide the Omelette into 4 pieces.
  • Place the four slices on the plate, on two slices, place a piece of omelette,
  • Next top with a lettuce layer.
  • Next spread mayo, ketchup on two slices and place it on these slices.
  • Sneak in the cheese slices in between and get all four decked on each other.
  • Just ensure each layer has the omelette with sauces and two layers have cheese slices.
  • Press all tightly and again grill on the hot griddle for the cheese to melt.
  • Slice and serve hot.


The original recipe calls sugar to be sprinkled in between layers, but I didn’t want to add that as I knew Konda likes spicy food and not a sweet one. So I skipped the main feature but that's fine I felt.
