  • Heat a non stick tawa and place the roti on it. Flip the side and brush eggs on it 2-3 times so that it forms a layer. Add ½ tsp oil on the tawa and fry till golden on both sides.
  • Transfer the roti onto a plate (the egg side facing up), place 3 meat balls in middle of the roti. Add cabbage, onion, green chutney and sprinkle 2 pinch frankie masala. Roll the roti tightly and cover half of it with aluminum foil.
