Eggy Bread - Street food of Calcutta

Here's a step by step collage of how to make 'Eggy Bread' - an amazingly simple but tasty street food that I found at a corner stall in Calcutta. It may have a more sophisticated name, but Eggy Bread says it all, really. For the equivalent of about 30 cents you've got a great snack or light meal on the run.

Eggy Bread - the recipe
Make a simple 2 egg omelette with some sliced green chilli and red onion and seasoning thrown in for good measure. Add to a hot pan with a little sunflower oil. Immediately add two thick slices of bread, drizzle with some ghee (clarified butter) and turn over to fry bread for a minute. Sandwich together and cut into quarters. Pop into a paper bag and munch on pieces as you walk down the street. Well, that's how it rolls in Calcutta! Delicious!
