Yes, that is not chickpea flour and not tofu! Just some good old red lentils (masoor dal).
Red Lentils are soaked for 15-20 mins. Then blended with water, spices, baking powder, kala namak. The veggies are cooked slightly with spices, then distributed in the pan. Then the lentil batter is spread on top. Bake and done!
Chickpeas and chickpea flour are the in thing these days. They are easily available too. Often, I want to use other beans and lentils in the recipes but end up using chickpeas. Its because of the ease of availability and the familiarity of the readers. Red lentils are coming up right behind chickpeas. Easily available, super quick cooking, protein filled and delicious. Try this frittata with red lentils. You can also use the chickpea flour mixture from this Broccolini frittata, or use this lentil batter in the broccolini frittata for variation. Make this into a quiche by using a prebaked quiche crust. Add spices and blends of choice. Fold in some smoke coconut (coconut bacon). Get baking!
