I’m having a love affair with the Vegan Pudla. I can’t stop making them. I was introduced to these babies by Kittee at Cake Maker to the Stars. Girl knows her stuff, she’s been vegan for more than 2 decades.
I thought it was supposed to be some sort of a vegan omelet replacement, but after more research, the pudla comes from Indian origins and is probably more identifiable as a pancake. Whatever it is, it’s delicious, and you need to make it, NOW. I followed Kittee’s guidelines here and then used them to make this recipe. Then I added lots of spinach, some nooch and some mustard powder… Eggs Schmeggs.
To see all of Kittee’s pudla’s she’s featured on her site, click here. I’ve also made these with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives. Believe me, more vegetables = better pudla. Try using about a cup of your favorite diced veg, spices and seasonings in yours. Enjoy!
Just in case you need a closer look….

I’m going to have to get some chickpea flour and try this out – and remember the salt comment too. They look great!
yes, it definitely needs salt. Oh my goodness, the chickpea flour is ridiculously cheap if you can find it in bulk. Just bought 5 lbs of it yesterday at just over a $1 a pound… 🙂
I buy garbanzo beans from Bob’s Red Mill in the big bags, then grind it into flour, using my Vitamix dry container. Woo-woo!!
Yeah, I’m a pansy, I have 2 blendtec jars and I still don’t want to mar either of them up with grinding…. Gotta get over it.
Cracking looking omelette thingy, Somer! 😀
Why thanks Frugal! You oughta give it a go, it uses one of your favorite flours…. 🙂
I definitely want to make these. I sometimes miss eggs.
Do it! Such a great and healthy option for breakfast! 🙂
I just reblogged and pinned it so I would remember. The ingredients are on my next grocery list.
Nice! Let me know what you think!
glad you are on the pudla train! you can also soak mung beans and then grind the into a batter for similar yummies!
Oh my. You really do know everything! 😉 Thanks so much for the introduction to these #gamechanger xx
Check your emails 😀
It is a GOOD thing I was already eating lunch when I opened your blog e-mail. Mercy, these look good! I printed off a couple of Kittee’s along with your suggestions…and then I passed both blogs along to a couple of people. Mmm…this will have to happen soon.
Make it happen soon! You won’t regret it! xx

I see so many things I want to make and try, and then forget. So, I thought I would reblog this to remember. I used to be great at making omelets and quiche, as well as any kind of custardy desserts, but gave eggs up to go lacto-vegetarian.
chickpea flour is about to rock your world. Whatever you do though, do not taste the raw batter…. It’s gross….
That looks amazing!
That’s because it is AMAZING! 😉 xx
Ode to Pudla :-). The dang things are amazing. Gotta put that on the menu plan for next week…
Super amazing. Everyone in the family loves these, which is no small feat… 🙂
This looks like just the thing to break me out of my end-of-winter cooking boredom!
I think it will! It’s pretty magic!
These look super scrumptious Somer! Love a good omelette but obviously haven’t had one in awhile now. When I saw this I knew it would have chickpea flour. I’ve yet to use chickpea flour because I’ve heard it can give an off taste, but I’m assuming you can’t taste it at all in this :). Looks good…especially topped with avocado.
Oh Brandi! The taste is only off when the batter is raw! Once it’s cooked…DIVINE! Don’t delay! xx
we make the omelette thingy a bit thinner pretty much every 4-5 days with variations! with veggies and cheese added in the batter.. yum!
we grew up eating puda/chilla(different names depending on region). usually made without leavening and made more like a thick crepe.
So good Richa, I can’t believe it took me so long to catch on. You know I’ll be searching your archives in about 30 days 🙂
The pudla is quickly becoming one of my favorite dinners- so quick, easy, and a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge. 🙂
You can put almost anything into it and it tastes good! I’ve gone raw for 30 days. I’m gonna miss it!
This will have to be tried 🙂
Oh yeah baby! You’re gonna love it Lucy 🙂
Never heard of it, but it looks delish – I’ll have to try it!
I love my blogging buddies for that reason! They’re always introducing me to new things! 🙂
Yummy, looks more like an omelet thingy to me though 😉
Pretty much 🙂

I think tis is going to save my mornings. Check it out!
I love your blog, I want to make all of your recipes. 🙂 they look so delicious and I’m looking forward to reading your posts!
Yay! Thanks Michelle! Enjoy 🙂
And you’re welcome! 😀
Looks wonderful. I don’t know if this was mentioned but if you look for chickpea flour at an Indian store, it may be called besan flour. I spent a long time at one such story looking for chickpea flour and finally had to ask. 🙂 Indian stores or grocery stores with a large ethnic section are great places to look for spices at incredible prices for huge sizes. Beware of the chili powder!! I got some in the Indian section and made chili that was almost too hot even for my heat-loving husband. It was much hotter than chili powder from the US. Thank goodness I didn’t use the larger amount in the suggested range. 🙂
Thanks Janet! People call it all sorts of things: chickpea, garbanzo, gram, besan….Too many names for one delicious thing! I’ve heard that about the chili powder when someone from Australia made one of my recipes…. oops. 😉 xx
This looks great! And naturally gluten-free – I’m a happy girl. 😀
Well…gee…how did you find something I had never heard of? 😀
You have CHANGED MY LIFE. I love besan pancakes, but WOW!
IT CHANGED MINE TOO! Squeeee! 🙂
Must try these..yum!
I hope you like them 🙂
OMG that looks SO GOOD! Just pinned and going to try out over the weekend!
Yay! You’re gonna love it! xx
mmmm i need to try this!
Such good stuff Ashley! I think you’ll love it… and you probably all ready have the key ingredients in your house 🙂
NOM! I love chickpea flour and have been making flat breads a lot lately! Def need to try this next!
Get on it girl! You’ll love Kittee’s site. She’s gluten free 🙂
Wow, Somer! You really know everything!! I’ve never heard of these before and I lived in Asia for almost 30 years! So, where did you buy your chickpea flour in bulk in UT?
Laurie, I just happen to “hang out online” with lots of cool vegan bloggers 🙂 I bought the chickpea flour at Good Earth, but I’m nearly positive Whole Foods would carry it as well.
Chickpea flour known as besan is available in Indian grocery stores. It is almost always the base for any deep fried Indian snack like fritters and is even used to thicken sauces. It is commonly used in south india as a skin exfolliant mixed with yogurt or water😊 Got to try this Gujarati pudla sometime, thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing that info 🙂 hope you enjoy this!
Yum! Definitely going to check this recipe out
I can see how I could fall in love with this too Somer 🙂 Beautiful!!!
This looks delish! 🙂
A delicious pudla and a new blog to follow BONUS! 🙂 Cheers Somer for a double whammy 🙂
Yeah, you’re going to love Kittee! She’s amazing
She is indeed :). I pinched every variety of pudla from her site and will be trialing them all over our coming winter…”Thank’s Kittee!” 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂 Yeehaw for Pudla!
A tasty looking pudla! Yummy Yum!! I can’t wait to try it out! 🙂
Never heard of it. Thanks!! I will definitely start making Pudla!
Thank you for visiting my blog, now I will follow yours!
Pudla is yummy! Hope you enjoy it! xx
I had never heard of pudla and I’m definitely intrigued. Might try it for dinner tonight.
Enjoy! It’s super yummy!
I’m glad you included the technical documentation (“omelet thingy”), otherwise I’d have no idea what you’re talking about… and those look goood!
haha! They’re amazing!
HI. I’d love to feature you tomorrow on Allergy Free Wednesday but could you please link back? Email me at wholenewmom at gmail dot com once you have.

These look scrummy!
Wow this looks gorgeous. I’ve been looking for new breakfast recipes and this is a great option. I just got rid of all my chickpea flour as I’ve got into grinding flour lately. I wonder if this would work with other flours. I haven’t found out how to make my own chickpea flour just yet.
Thank you for sharing this with Healthy Vegan Fridays. Check back on Friday to see if you were one of the Top 3! We hope to see you again this week. You can submit a post from Friday to end of Tuesday:
Katherine 🙂 You can totally grind whole dried chickpeas into flour. It may just take a little while 🙂 Thanks so much!
This looks beautiful! I love savory and filling breakfasts. This sounds right up my alley, especially with your additions of olives, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. Those things make any meal better!
Oh it’s so good! Jump on it! It’s a new staple around here. I love Kittee!
This is amazing!
This looks amazing! I am def. gonna make this ASAP!
Somer! I finally got my pudla on!! They look so authentic! I will use more spice in them next time. I used mushroom, green pepper, green onions, tomato and serrano chilies. I served them with my homemade broc guac and they were YUM! My only problem was being able to flip them without breaking them but that is just a skill I’ll have to master! 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!!
YES! I use a really huge spatula to flip mine, though it is a bit tricky! I love the veg combo you put in there. Um, I need your broc guac recipe! xx
I just steam 2 broccoli heads till soft and pulse in a food processor. I then add 2 avocados and pulse with lemon juice, salt and pepper, and cumin to taste. Then I stir in chopped cilantro. Just play around with the spices and you can also stir in some salsa to taste. Delicious used as regular guacamole with a fraction of the fat and calories.

any way you can remove people from that service? Thank you!
I’m not sure how to remove you from that service, I think you can remove yourself somehow though. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! 🙂
Where have these been my whole life? I’m addicted…it’s too late to turn back. Thank you!!!!!!!
