Eggy Roti Vegetable Roll





For the last and final day of the marathon, here is how to incorporate more veggies into your diet, but in a fun way --> Eggy roti vegetable roll.
When I tell my kids to eat chapathi with curry, they get bored sometimes. Instead, letting them stuff their roti with with they like cucumbers and carrots, its fun and enjoyable!
Adding some protein, like an egg on the chapati make it healthy more yummy!
For myself, I add bell peppers, onions too. Its something like a katti roll but without the katti part, only with veggies.

Adding egg is an option, you can leave it out if you don't eat egg.
You can add some chat masala on the veggies to give them a flavor, or just salt them!
Its one very easy and quick to put together meal and is also perfect for a lunch box. Just remember to carry the rotis and veggies separately, and do the stuffing later just before eating.

If you are not fond of raw veggies, go ahead and saute them. Veggies like onions, carrots, zucchini, bell peppers can be sauteed with some salt, pepper and amchoor masala, with a touch of chat masala. Saute them only so much, that they are not mushy but still have a crunch. Stuff the chapathi with sauteed veggies and you have a healthy meal put together.

I make it both ways, depends on how much time and how my mood is! :)
I don't mind eating raw veggies, so its much easy to put together all the raw veggies and build myself a roll.

Here you get a balanced diet of a good and perfect meal.







Ingredients:

2 chapathis or rotis

For Egg Mixture:

2 eggs or egg whites, which ever you like
pinch of salt
pinch of turmeric
chilli powder to your taste

Method:

Heat the roti on a tawa.

Serve immediately.
Enjoy!!!
