This recipe was super easy to make and really not time intensive. You could dice up the vegetables the night before to prep. So my disclaimer is that I don't really measure, measure, so everything is my best estimate. Plus I don't necessarily follow the recipes since in general I'm not like a rule follower.
Indian Inspired Zucchini Omelette (Vegan)
· 1 cup of chickpea flour
· 1 ½ cups water
· 3 tsp of curry power (I used Frontier® curry powder with turmeric, paprika & fenigreek)
· 1 tsp kosher salt
· 1 quarter of a mediumish red onion finely chopped
· 1 jalapeno finely chopped
· 1 half of a medium size zucchini finely chopped
· 2 Tablespoons of safflower oil or vegan ghee
1. In a bowl (I use a batter bowl; makes life easier), combine the chickpea flour and the water. Whisk together till smooth then let the mixture set for about 5 minutes.
2. Add in the onion, jalapeno, zucchini, salt and curry powder and whisk together.
3. Heat a Tablespoon of the oil in a medium size skillet over medium-high heat. Pour about half the mixture into the skillet so that the batter is spread semi-thin.
4. Cook unto the edges start to brown. Carefully flip over and cook till browned. About 3 minutes or so.
5. Continue to make the other omelette with the remaining oil.
