The Rolex is Ugandan street food made of eggs, thinly sliced cabbage, carrot, onion, tomatoes, chiles and rolled in a chapati. Vendors would call out "Rolled Eggs... Rolled Eggs" and visitors mistook this for Rolex.  Like the watch.  The name stuck.

Roll out some chapati dough and fry until it puffs like a tortilla would.  Brush with melted butter as they come off and stack.


The two egg filling is stirred in a large mug along with the veggies


Give it a flip


Place a chapati on top to steam and soften


Add sliced tomatoes and chiles


Roll it up and wrap with a sheet of newspaper.  I didn't have any available so used a paper towel.  This is as good as it looks.  Ugandan Rolex
