Egg roll is a famous Chinese recipe . Today i am going to show you how to make an egg roll from the scratch.I have tried to prepare an egg roll in an Indian style, Personally i never prefer to add soy sauce, vinegar and ajinomoto in any Chinese recipe I make as the consumption off these three items are not good for health.But if you want to use these item while making an egg you are free to do so.

Method to make Egg Roll :-
- On a well greased tawa place the wrapper and break one or two eggs as per your choice and spread it evenly with a spoon.
- Keep spreading it until you see egg getting cooked slightly.
- Carefully turn the wrapper over so that the side with the egg-spread gets cooked well.
- In the meantime spread some oil on the wrapper in order to get a soft and crispy feel.
- Once cooked place the wrapper on a flat surface with the egg-spread facing upwards.
- Place little amount of the stuffing in the middle of the wrapper and spread it straight line but leaving an inch at both corner.
- Drop a little tomato sauce, chilli sauce and chaat masala and roll it with one side of the wrapper inside a tissue paper.
