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.
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 !!!
