Rolex ("rolled eggs") is a vegetable-filled omelet wrapped in a chapati flatbread. It is a nourishing and finger licking food item. It is best enjoyed when hot and can be eaten for almost any meal.

Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  2. Crack the eggs in a medium sized bowl. Whisk in the onions, tomato, cabbage, coriander, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the hot pan, and pour in half the egg mixture. Allow it to cook for about 3 minutes.
  4. When the top is only a little wet, place a chapati over it.
  5. Flip the omelette and chapati over so the chapati is at the bottom. Allow the chapati to warm for 2 minutes.
  6. Roll the omelet up with the chapati on the outside.
  7. Wrap in foil and serve it immediately.
  8. Repeat the steps above with the remaining egg mixture and chapati.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Red onions are a popular choice.
  • You can add any vegetables of your choice. You can also add chopped ginger.
  • If you can't make the chapati at home and it's otherwise unavailable, you can use ready-made flaky paratha.
