A vegan spanish tortilla recipe! My dear friend Daisy in Rishikesh taught me how to make this and it's been a hit with friends and family since. You can try this recipe and then modify, adding your favorite vegetables and spices. The key here is to use chickpea flour, which you can buy these days at most major grocery stores; they'll definitely have it at Indian stores as well.
