  3. Add the chickpea powder to the remaining ingredients, do not mix. The mass should still remain frothy (?). Heat a little oil in a well-coated pan. Place the dough in the pan and immediately spread with a spatula evenly.

The omelet is ready when it is golden brown, no longer too soft, and the surface is no longer moist. Remove the pan from the oven and let the omelet stand for 1 to 2 minutes in the pan.
  6. Then place on a plate, spread the sautéed mushrooms, avocado slices, and field salad and gently fold the omelet.
  7. Serve with a dressing of choice, avocado, black sesame seeds, fresh basil, and serve immediately.


Kala Namak salt give the omelettes an egg-like taste due to its sulfur content. --Not every chickpeas water can be well try opening, here goes on to study. Most brands / varieties can be good impact. It is not necessary to add the chickpeas water cooling, the opening but easier.-- NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS. Instead of aquafaba, you can use non-dairy milk. This entire recipe is similar to a pancake batter so this would work too.
