Knead the dough previous day and store it in a refrigerator for avoiding last minute rush! This is a health packed option for kids with the good amount of carbs and protein in it! Now let’s see the recipe

- Knead the dough as for chapati and keep it aside.
- For filling – In a pan pour oil add sliced onion, green chilly and ginger garlic with salt. Cook it until slightly soft. Then add sliced tomato and cook. When its soft add the spice powders and mix well and cook for few more minutes.
- Then crack in all the eggs and gently start scrambling it. You need a sticky soft scrambled egg, not fully fried. Throw in some coriander leaves and switch off the flame. Let it cool.
