This is a  very popular street-food from Bengal. Everybody who hails from Kolkata as well as West Bengal is very well known with this flavour. Made with egg and scrumptious filling of salad or chicken kabab or minced mutton or tikka or simply by veggies. So there are several types of rolls, egg roll, chicken roll, egg-chicken roll, mutton roll, chicken tikka roll. Now-a-days paneer roll is also available for vegetarians.

2 Cups all purpose flour (Maida)
4 Eggs
1 Red Onion (finely sliced)
1 tbsp finely chopped Green Chillies
1 Cucumber (julienned)
1 tbsp chopped Capsicum
2 tbsps grated Carrot
2 tbsps Lemon juice
4 tbsps Hot & Sweet Tomato Sauce
!/3 tsp Black Pepper powder
4 Kitchen paper towel (for wraping the rolls)
6 tbsps Oil
Salt to taste

Make a soft dough with flour, 1 tsp salt, 2 tbsps oil and luke warm water. Knead the flour well. Make 4 round parathas with it.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a flat frying pan. Beat 1 egg with little salt and black pepper powder. Pour the egg mixture in frying pan and swirl as if making an omelette. Place the paratha on the top of the egg and place it gently. Flip the paratha when egg is done and cook for few seconds more. Do the same process for other 3 parathas also.

Put the parathas on the board with the egg side up. Line up cucumber, carrot, capsicum, onion, green chillies at the centre of the each paratha. Pour 1 tbsp tomato sauce and 1/2 tbsp lemon juice on the vegetables.

Roll up the parathas with vegetables at the centre and cover half of it with kitchen papers. Truk the papers well to hold the roll together.

Serve hot.

It is such a meal, which is filling and fulfilling at the same time. Enjoy!
