Tasty Ugandan Rolex.

This Ugandan dish is the country’s most famous street food. A simple omelette wrapped in a chapati; it is tasty, filling and can be had any time of the day. This wildly popular food is not named after the “Rolex” watch, but a funny play of the phrase “rolled eggs”.

It is not hard to make, and the best part of making it for yourself is you can choose the vegetables and spices just the way you like them.

Disclaimer: The street vendors make it slightly differently, this is my abridged version.

Ingredients : Salt and pepper, eggs, shredded vegetables ( I used onion, coriander, tomato, green capsicum, carrot and cabbage), and some already cooked chapati.
Beat your eggs in a bowl together with the vegetables and pinch of salt and pepper.
Add oil in a pan, fry the egg mixture, let cook on one side and flip.
Place a warm chapati on top and press as the egg cooks on the other side.
Once cooked, flip them on a plate.
Roll them up, and voila, you have your rolled eggs, aka Rolex.
You can serve immediately, or wrap them up then put in a hotpot for later.
Yum!
You can serve them hot on their own with your drink of choice, or with some sweet potato fries like I did here.

This is a basic rolex recipe that one can switch up as per your preferences.

It is so delicious and filling, half a roll is more than enough for me.

Definitely worth a try!
