Say Cheese! 

Masala Omelette Grilled Cheese 

About a month ago, I asked a bunch of my near an dear ones to help me list a few classic recipes that would be fun to makeover, the good karma way! I got a long list of challenges ahead of me, but one particular dish stood out for obvious reasons. A classic grilled cheese sandwich! Everyone loves it and everyone has their very own version of it. Unfortunately I never had one of my own, so seemed like an appropriate place to start. 

I’m not much of a carboholic so first thing I did was upped the protein content. Then I added a lot of desi tadka because in case you haven’t figured it out yet, that’s what I do. Hope you enjoy this healthy (er) version of the classic that you could probably enjoy for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack or dinner! 


  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 tbsp chopped onions 
  • 2 tbsp chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 tsp grated ginger 
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro 
  • Chopped green chili according to taste 
  • 1 tsp each of paprika & cumin powder 
  • Sat & pepper to taste 
  • 2 slices whole wheat/ multigrain bread
  • Butter to spread + butter to pan fry
  • Green coriander chutney (optional) 
  • Oil to pan fry
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Cheese of ur choice ( I used an Italian blend by Kraft) 


  1. Crack the eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the onions, tomatoes, ginger, cilantro, chilies, spices & seasoning.
  2. Cut off the crusts from the bread slices. Spread some butter and chutney. Add the cheese on top of a slice and sandwich it with the other slice and set aside. 
  3. Heat some oil and butter in a frying pan. 
  4. Add the eggs and spread it out to form a large, thin omelette.
  5. While it’s still mostly liquid, place the sandwich down in the middle.
  6. Once the edges of the omelette start to come lose, start wrapping them around the sandwich to make a nice package. (Don’t stress if it’s not a perfect fit, no one cares.) 
  7. Flip it over and let it brown on the other side. 
  8. Slice and serve hot with ketchup & chutney!
