Recipe by Jasper and Hanial


This food is traditionally made in Uganda and it is called Rolex or “Rolled Eggs”. It is easy to cook and people generally love them. You can cut them up and serve them as apps or of course enjoy a full one to yourself for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner.  We used the Xawaash spice mix in the eggs but you can get creative and use whatever spice you like.

  • 1 tsp Salt 
  • 1 cup Oil
