Rolex is a popular food in Uganda. It’s basically an omelette and veggies wrapped with a chapati. From my little research the name rolex is a play on rolled eggs.
Albeit knowing about rolex, this was my first time making and eating it. I absolutely loved the outcome. Typically cabbage is used but I didn’t have any on hand so I used arugula. I also added cheese to the mix. I particularly loved the combination of the two with everything else.
This cheesy arugula omelette is the perfect fix for just about any meal and is very easy to whip up.
A key ingredient is chapati. I used leftover chapati. Be sure to warm it up.
In case you struggle making chapatis, I have the perfect tutorial that yields soft and layered chapatis every single time.
For the omelette, I used eggs, arugula, onions, some grated gouda cheese, salt and pepper.
To add more heat when assembling the rolex, I used tamarind chilli sauce from Umai organic. I love their condiments.
Once rolled up, slice in half on the diagonal and enjoy.
The beauty of the rolex is that you can play around with what you have on hand. Baby spinach can be used, even cooked greens like managu or sukuma wiki.
If using cheese, cheddar is also a good option, even crumbled up feta cheese.
Essentially, feel free to experiment.
I sure hope you’ll give this recipe a try. I’m already looking forward to the day I’m making chapati for dinner so that I can enjoy rolex the morning after.
