Egg Roti Rolls

Whole wheat  roti is  best  served  piping  hot.  The  picture of  mom or  grandma  sitting  by the  fire  and  making  piping  hot  roti  on demand is comforting, but  not  very practical  especially when  I happen to be the cook in  question. I guesstimate (wow, didn’t realize  that it  was an  actual  word  ! ),  and  often   time  there are  leftovers. Here is  one way I turn  the leftover roti from the  previous  night’s  dinner to  delicious  breakfast  rolls – Egg Roti Rolls. These are  healthy, nutritious  and a  great   way to start   the  day with.

Egg Roti Rolls - Easy breakfast mad e with leftover tortillas or rotis

The  basic  recipe  uses  eggs ,  tomatoes  , onions  and   chilies.  This is an  easy   recipe  to adapt  to your  liking.  Spice  up  by adding  garam masala,  chili powder  and  turmeric.  Add   thinly sliced mushrooms,  bell peppers,  spinach, grated  carrots  are  other  vegetables   that  goes  well in this  recipe. For  an  added  fresh  taste  various add  a  handful of   chopped  fresh herbs like – cilantro,  mint  or  dill.   The  cheese lovers can sprinkle  some   cheese  on top  just  before   rolling.

Roll it   up   and  tucked in a  napkin ,  this  is a  grab  and  go breakfast  for those   monday  mornings  when   everyone  starts  the  day  with  one  leg  out  the  door …  Happy  Monday !!!

My hubby and I are in love with Egg Roti Rolls. While I have not made homemade paratha yet (we just buy frozen from Trader Joe’s), I am very curious about the pan you are cooking your Egg Roti Roll on in the video. What is it called? Is it a different type of tava? Do you know where I can buy one? Thank you so much for your insight!

Actually, if I may append my previous message, I would like to purchase the exact apparatus you are using to cook the Egg Roti Roll in your video. Help! I have plenty of iron skillets but wish to purchase the exact item pictured. Thanks so much for any insight.
