Bread Cheese Omelette | Street Bread Omelette | Bread Omelette

Bread Cheese Omelette, one of my favorite street foods, so easy to prepare and can be served as breakfast or mild tiffin in the evening  or as a snack. There are quite different ways of preparing this bread omelette, but the recipe that i'm sharing today was inspired from the bread omelette that i used to have from the food stand opposite to my office when i was working in chennai. 

I still remember that the food stand had only a small gas stove with dosa tawa, a few small bowls with green chutney, salt & pepper and masala powder, packets of bread & cheese and a tray of eggs, all in one small stool. That's it, but the bread omelette served there was so totally delicious, especially the green chutney spread on those bread omelette takes this simple dish to a whole new level !!! 
There were only two types of sandwiches available in that food stand such as plain & cheese bread omelette. Back then I was not a big fan of cheese stuff, so I always had the plain bread omelette. But now I like this bread omelette with a slice of mozzarella cheese in between. 

Whether it has cheese or not, this bread omelette is so tasty with those green chutneys. Here in the recipe I have used this green chutney recipe  without tempering, but you can also use the chaat green chutney, i have tried with both green chutney and both ways, it tastes equally good too. So it's really up to you to use whatever the green chutney you like.

Bread Omelette, Bread Cheese Omelette, Street food Bread Cheese Omelette, one of my favorite street foods, so easy to prepare and can be served as breakfast or mild tiffin in the evening or as a snack.
Bread Slices - 2
Egg - 1 
Salt - a pinch
Red Chili powder - as needed
Cheese Slice - 1 
Coriander leaves - few
Butter - 1/2 tsp

Crack open a egg in a bowl, add salt, chili powder & coriander leaves into the egg and whisk it till it became frothy.
Heat the pan, add the butter, let it melt.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan, keep the flame in low. Take a bread slice, dip one side of the bread slice in the egg mixture on the pan slightly, flip the bread to other side and place it on the pan. That way, both sides of the bread have egg coating.
Similarly place second slice of bread on other side of the pan, let it cook for a min and then gently flip the egg. Let cook the other side of the bread  for a min and then flip again.
Spread the green chutney on one slice of bread and place the cheese on other slice of bread. Fold the sides of the egg omelette towards the center of bread and fold again into half.
Remove from the place and slice into four or as you wish. 
Serve it with ketchup on the top.

  • Heat should be low while pouring the egg on the pan. It helps to cook the egg slowly, so you can dip the bread slices in the egg mixture before it sets.
  • You can make this even without cheese too.
  • Adjust the chili powder as per your liking.
  • Instead of red chili powder, you can use pepper powder or chopped chili chilies too.
  • If you like, you can sprinkle some chopped onions on the top while serving.
