Ugandan RolexRolex is classic Ugandan street food. The similarity to the luxury watch brand is happenstance: Once upon a time the vendors who made this treat called out “Rolled Eggs” – nothing more. The basic idea is eggs cooked with cabbage, onion, tomato, and sometimes peppers, which is then wrapped in chapati. But, as the words careened off their tongue, “Rolled Eggs” sounded more like “Rolex” to visitors. Gradually the (quite fun) misinterpretation stuck.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Crack eggs into a large mug. Add the cabbage, tomato, red onion, and salt. Stir together with a spoon until well combined.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Oil well. Nonstick pans make the job even easier.
  3. Add the eggs and spread out into a flat circle with the back of your spoon. Let cook until mostly set and the bottom is browned.
  4. Flip and cook another couple of minutes. Top with chapati to heat it up.
  5. Remove from pan and, when cool enough to handle, roll it up! Enjoy your bite of Uganda.
Recipe Notes

Options: Right before serving consider adding hot peppers or more sliced tomatoes.
