At least for me it is a daily challenge to feed my 2.5 year old fussy angel a meal that she would love to eat; at the moment, she seem to have real sweet tooth, just like her father. Furthermore, I have to give her variety in her meals while not compromising the nutritional aspect. On these experimental lines, I have today made a twist to the simple omelette by adding oats, and have delivered it to my daughter’s plate in different shapes. And yes, she finished it quickly and happily 🙂
Needless to say, breakfast should be our fullest meal of the day as it sets the tone of our body for rest of the day. The combination of eggs and oats is very real wholesome and nutritious. Eggs contain high quality protein and a wide range of essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements; and Oats provide carbohydrate, protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants and other important nutrients. Eggs are not high in fat, and Oats have high fibre content helping cleanse our arteries of cholesterol. I hope the nutrition point of this combination is well made now 🙂
The ingredients for Oats Omelette are:
- Egg : 2
- Oats : 2 Tbsp
- Onion : 1 tsp
- Green chilli : 1
- Salt : to taste
- Coriander leaf : 1/2 tsp
- Turmeric Powder : a pinch
- Oil : 1/4 tsp or as needed
Crack the eggs in a bowl and beat them with a fork until a smooth liquid. Now add oats and beat again.
Finely chop onions, green chilli and coriander leaves. Then add onions, green chilli in the egg mixture and beat the mixture again.
Now add salt, turmeric powder and coriander leaves and beat it well again.
Heat a skillet / tawa on a medium flame and grease it with oil. Take your cookie cutters and grease them with oil as well. When the skillet becomes hot, place the greased cookie cutter on it and fill the cookie cutter with egg mixture using a spoon.
When you see the upper side is changing colour, flip the moulds and allow the other side to be cooked. It is ready when it becomes light brown in colour.
Remove the moulds from the skillet and keep on the plate for a minute; and then de-mould the oats omelette shapes.
Serve these oats omelette shapes with ketchup. I have made this for my little toddler and so have used very less spices but feel free to add more spices as per your taste.
Insider Tips / Finer Points :
