Weeknight Dinner - Egg Roll
On days I plan to make some chicken in he evening, I remove the chicken from the freezer, in the morning before I leave for work. By the time I am back home in the evening, it well thawed and ready for cooking. But lately, in my morning rush to get out of the houseafter getting my daughter ready, dropping her at daycare and still trying to reach office at a respectable time of the morning, I seem to forget to take out the chicken or fish from the freezer. Today was one such morning, so I had to modify my original dinner plans and think of something new (and quick!). Usually whenever I am at a loss of what to make and want something I quick, I fall back on the versatile Egg Roll. Both my daughter and husband love eggs so it doesn't really matter what I put inside the roll, they are happy.
4 Flour Tortillas (ideally rotis or home made parathas, but I am not fast enough to pull that off in less than 30 min and I really want to send this for Mallugirl's Summer Express Cooking event)
Eggs (1 per roll)
Some lettuce (or any greens of your choice)
Ketchup (mustard, coriander chutney or any other condiment of your choice)
Vegetable patties (or chicken or any leftover sabzi, or skip this altogether)
Here is the vegetable patty I use. Bought from Costco. I really like it's taste, much better than the usual garden burgers. In fact, the cafeteria at my work is pretty bad, so on days I don't have leftovers from the dinner to take to work for lunch, I throw in one of these patties and have it with bread.
Turn and cook the other side (one side should be coated with the egg and well cooked)
Remove from heat and add onions, tomatoes, ketchup greens. This is a versatile dinner add whatever you like.
Roll it up and eat!
Back home the Egg Roll serves more as an evening snack, but I turn into a full meal on days I am short on time.
