Chapati Egg Roll Recipe

Chapati Egg rolls

Chapati and omelette rolled together and cut into rounds, perfect for brunch or lunch or dinner…

Yesterday, I promised myself that I would take a break from the store bought tortillas, pita breads and rotis. So for dinner, I had to make chapatis from scratch. Though making any kind of rotis from scratch is a bit time consuming process, once I start making something from scratch I will be seen enjoying it thoroughly. The puffed up chapatis never fails to put a smile on my face. I served the chapati with dal and pan fried fish. Had some leftover chapatis, I stored them in the refrigerator.

Today, I woke up pretty late. Well, it’s Sunday morning I better be romancing with my bed. After waking up, lazy me thought of skipping the brunch as it was already lunch time. However, the chapatis in the refrigerator insisted that I make something fancy out of them. I could only think of making omelette and then wrapping it in the chapati. It wasn’t a bad idea after all. The wrapped omelette chapati was then cut into rounds and was served with tomato ketchup.

Not just adults, the kids are going to love this too and so it’s a kid friendly lunch as well.

You could use tortillas instead of chapatis.
