Recipe: Rolex

Rolex or ‘rolled eggs’ is an easy to make, cheap, easy to eat comfort food suitable for any time of day that is eaten regularly in Uganda. This is my attempt to replicate it!

  • 1 pepper
  • 1 rd onion
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Half a dozen eggs
  • 2 Large Chapatis / rotis
  • Butter
  • Sriracha sauce (optional)
  • Black pepper & salt


  1. Fry the onions and peppers and any other veg in butter in a standard sized frying pan
  2. Pour in three beaten eggs and cook as a thin omelette, add grated cheese
  3. Turn over and start heating chapati in another pan on both sides
  4. add the omelette to the chapati and serve with Srirachi sauce – if eating fo dinner with a side salad 🥗

Any leftover chapatis – go for another easy comfort dish – a Sri Lanka inspired kottu roti
