Hey guys!!! On reading the title you might have the misconception that I have prepared an Omelette using eggs but no this is a purely vegetarian omelette which is a famous street food in Mumbai. It is served piping hot with green pudina chutney and sauce. I have made the sandwich version of this famous street food which tastes even better. I have used brown bread in this recipe you can use white bread also but I prefer brown bread as it is more crispy on grilling. It is perfect as an evening snack or as breakfast. A perfectly vegetarian version of omelette and tastes really good. So a shout out for the eggetarians and vegetarians to try out this recipe for sure.
