Method
* Place a pan over low heat and let it get hot.
* Crack the eggs into a small bowl. Add in all the spices and a tbsp of milk. I always add a little milk to my eggs, it make the omelette fluffier and also takes away the smell.
* Beat well with a fork.
* Once the pan is hot, add the butter.
* When the butter has melted, add the cumin seeds. Add onions, and chillies. Fry and toss them around for about 1 minute.
* Now add the beaten eggs. As soon as you put the eggs in, stir them quickly with the spatula.
* This is a flip-over omelette where there is no soft, runny centre. When the omelette firms up from bottom, ease the sides with a spatula and flip over. Cook the other side until it is golden brown.
* Remove from heat and slide over a serving plate.
* To make the omelette sandwich, cut the omelette in quarters.
* Take two bread slices and spread tomato ketchup on one and green chutney on another.
* Put two omelette quarters on of the slices. Top with cheese slice and close with the second bread slice.
* Lightly cook on both side on the same pan used for making the omelette.
* Remove on a serving plate, cut into two triangles and serve hot.
