Bread Omelette - Quick and easy

Well when you are really lazy to cook breakfast or a snack then you could try this. We used to eat this very often in a juice shop near my home. It tastes really yummy....and a better way to substitute whole wheat bread instead of the regular white bread. For kids reduce the amount of chillies. For a quicker version use store bought salsa instead of the chutney.

I have tried to explain the procedure with pics for better understanding. Do try this recipe and let me know your comments:)

2 Eggs
4 slices of any kind of sandwich bread (I used whole wheat bread)
1/2 onion chopped finely
pinch of turmeric powder
salt and pepper to taste
few drops of extra light olive oil
(you can use butter/ghee/cooking oil instead of olive oil)

1 1/2 cup washed and chopped coriander leaves
1 inch of ginger
1/4 cup roasted channa dal
2 green chillies(adjust according to your spice level)
salt to taste

Grind the chutney using a blender. Toast all the bread slices slightly on one side until it turns little golden in color. Spread the chutney on the toasted side as shown below.

In a bowl take few drops of water and add the turmeric powder, salt and pepper and mix them completely(this will make the turmeric, salt and pepper to mix with the egg completely). Now break the eggs and add to this. Whisk the egg using a spoon/fork. Add the chopped onions and blend this with the egg mixture. Heat oil in the pan and spread half the mixture to make one omelette.

When the egg is almost done place 2 bread slices on the egg with the chutney side down. Let the egg cook completely.

Now fold the slices carefully with the omelette sandwiched. You can scrape the eggs on the sides of the bread and stuff them in the center. Cook till the bottom slice turns golden.

Then flip the bread omelette so that the other slice gets toasted. When the other slice also gets golden, remove from the pan. Now repeat the same procedure with the remaining egg mixture and the other two slices. Serve hot with ketchup:)
