Street Treat : Indian Bun Omelette


Bun Omelette, true to it's name, is a soft bread roll smothered in butter and stuffed with the most delicious, spicy, omelette ever. It's a common street snack in Northern India (although not the most hygienic!) and was a sporadic late night treat for us when my brother & I were home for the holidays from boarding school. This is my [healthier] version with spring veggies & egg whites.

What you will need

3 Egg Whites

5 Cherry Tomatoes, halved

1 Small Red Onion, diced

1 Green Chili, finely chopped

1/2 cup Baby Spinach, roughly torn

1/4 teaspoon Red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon Chaat Masala

1/4 teaspoon Garam Masala

2 tablespoons Light Olive Oil or Unsalted Butter

1 teaspoon Whole Milk

2 tablespoons Aged Cheddar / Gouda, grated

2 tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, chopped (with stalk)

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 Challah Roll / Burger Bun / Soft Bread Roll
