How to make oats egg omelette with step by step photos
1. Wash and chop veggies as needed. I used 2 tbsp onions, 2 tbsp capsicum, 2 tbsp grated carrot, 2 tbsp deseeded and chopped firm tomato. 2 green chilies chopped, cilantro (coriander leaves) chopped finely. You can also use spring onions, cabbage. Set these aside.
2. To a bowl add oat flour, salt, turmeric, pepper powder, any spice powder and oregano if you have. To make oat flour process ¼ cup oats to a fine flour in a mixer or processor. You will get around ¼ cup (heaped) flour.
3. Add 3 tbsp milk to the flour and make a lump free batter. If you follow the ayurvedic food combining rules, then egg and milk do not go well as they are not compatible with each other. So You can use vegan milk, oat milk goes very well for this.
4. Break 2 eggs to the bowl.
5. Beat them all together with a fork until lightly frothy. The mixture must be of a pouring consistency. If your eggs are very small, you may need to add in 1 to 2 tbsp. more milk.
6. Add 1.5 tsp oil to a pan. Heat it.
7. Set the flame to medium. When the pan is hot enough, pour the egg mixture.
8. Mix all the veggies and layer them. Gently press the veggies with a spatula.
9. When the base is firm enough, flip it. Cook until the other side is fully cooked.
10. If you like you can sprinkle pepper powder and chaat masala.
