Omelettes are very good breakfast options. These Oats Tomato Omelettes doesn’t have eggs in them and gets done in a jiffy. Basically maida (refined flour) is used in tomato omelettes, but I have replaced maida with oats since oats are rich in dietary fiber and also have many health benefits.
Oats tomato omelette is a saviour for me many times. I keep the batter ready the previous day and next day a healthy nutritious breakfast will be ready within minutes.
Oats tomato omelette tastes good even after few hours of preparing, thus making it a good lunchbox option. We can have them with just curd/coconut chutney/chutney powder/Pickle.

Step 1: Add instant oats, gram flour and tomatoes with 1 cup of water to a blender and blend till fine paste. If required add more water to grind the batter smooth.
Step 2: Transfer the batter to a large mixing bowl and keep aside.
Step 3: Remove the seeds of a big tomato and finely chop it, finely chop onion, green chillies and coriander leaves and transfer these to mixing bowl containing oats mixture.
Step 4: Now add Semolina, Turmeric powder, salt and 1 cup of water and mix well till everything is combined.
Step 5: Set aside the mixture for half an hour to one hour. Most of the times I mix the batter and refrigerate it the previous day.
Making Oats Tomato Omelette
Step 1: Add a pinch of baking soda to the batter just before making omelettes and mix the batter gently.
Step 2: Heat a tawa, I have used granite tawa(similar to non stick tawa) which doesn’t require oil to be applied before making omelette. If you are using a cast iron tawa , grease it with oil before making each omelette.
Step 3: Once the tawa is hot enough, keep the flame in medium and pour one ladle full of batter and spread gently (Use the technique used for making pancakes/set dosas). Do not spread like you spread a normal dosa.
Step 4: Cover and cook for a while until it is cooked. Apply little oil/ghee with brush, flip and cook it for a minute on the other side.
Step 5: Repeat making more omelettes in similar way.
