Crunchy Bread Omelette- Platform Style

In my quest of a easy takeaway breakfast, I found this recipe by one of my fellow blogger friends which she came across during one of her recent train trips along the Eastern part of India. The recipe is that of a simple Bread Omelette that we prepare everyday at home, but with a platform style crunchy twist. I tried it this morning and voila, it was indeed a refreshing change from the usual boring Omelette. It also serves well as a tiffin snack for kids and adults alike. You can tweak the recipe as per your liking and taste.

1 egg
1 small onion finely chopped
1 green chilli finely chopped
1 slice of bread cut into small chunks
Coriander leaves finely chopped (optional)
A pinch of turmeric powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp mustard oil (if you find the smell and taste of mustard oil too pungent, you can use any other oil of your choice)


Take a bowl and beat the egg until fluffy. Add all the other ingredients except the bread chunks and mix well. Heat a frying pan and add the oil. If adding mustard oil, let the oil become smoky hot and then lower the heat before adding the egg. Spread evenly onto the pan so that the entire pan gets covered and forms a circular shape. Simmer the gas and add the bread chunks while lightly pressing into the egg. This will ensure that the bread won't fall off when you turn the egg on the other side. When the egg gets cooked on one side, gently turn the egg ensuring that it doesn't break in between due to the weight of the bread chunks. Let the other side cook for another 2 to 3 minutes so that the bread chunks get lightly toasted as well. Remove from heat and enjoy this crunchy bread omelette with your cuppa.
