This dish is known by many names like Egg Roll, Frankies, Kathi Roll. I prefer to call it Egg Roll. I have used whole wheat flour to make the flatbreads. To make it more presentable, either refined flour or a mix of both the flours would be a good idea. I have used ready-to-use seekh kababs.This dish is a very filling and tasty mix of carbs, proteins and vitamins.
To make six rolls we need the following ingredients
6 big flatbreads or rotis
6 seekh kababs
1 medium onion cut into half moons
1 cucumber peeled into ribbons
1/2 green capsicum chopped fine
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp finely chopped coriander leaves
A pinch of red chilli powder
Tomato sauce as required
Salt to taste.
- Break 6 eggs in a bowl and beat them nicely.Add salt, pepper, coriander leaves, and capsicum. Mix and keep aside.
- Take a shallow frying pan and arrange the frozen seekh kababs in the pan.Put the burner on and cover and cook for 10 mins on one side and flip and cook for 5 mins on the other side.
- This can be done under the grill making sure to cook it on both the sides.
- Take a non- stick pan and add 1 tsp of oil .As it gets heated, pour enough egg to make an omlette.Swirl it in the pan to spread evenly on all sides.
- Put the flatbread on the omlette when its is still runny.
- Cook for a minute and flip it.Cook the other side for a minute.
- Take it out on a board and arrange the seekh kabab, onions,tomato sauce and cucumber ribbons at one end .
- Roll it tightly.Your roll is ready.
Though one roll is enough to not let you feel hungry for three to four hours,this is so tasty we always tend to overeat.If you want to carry it for picnics, then keep the flatbreads or rotis in a round airtight box.This would prevent the rotis from getting fold marks.To carry, make the omlettes and pack in a seperate round box.Then let people assemble their own rolls.This particular recipe works very well when we take out our children and their friends for an outing. Or even when their friends come for a sleepover. We can add any filling like shredded or pulled chicken, but I love to put seekh kababs because they are less messy.
