Veggie Breakfast Rolls with Cranberry Sauce

In the Southbeach,
I heard something screech,

Then I looked up in the sky,
Which made me want to fly,
With hands spread aside,
Eyes open wide.

And then I saw seagulls,
and so many eagles,
So I took a pic, 
And went click, click and click.

Out of the many,
This was the one pretty,
So with great zest,
I posted this picture 'coz it was the best.

About the breakfast roll recipe , It's a recipe I came about last sunday morning, when I felt so fresh that I wanted to make something new. I had just bought these amazing looking sun dried tomato and spinach tortillas and I thought of combining them and the cranberry sauce and the lonely eggs laying peacefully in the fridge. So I came up with this scrumptious and colorful roll for a bright, happy sunday morning.

The Recipe:
(For 2 rolls)

Tortillas - 2
Eggs - 1 or 2 (depending on the size of the tortilla)
Chopped tomatoes
Chopped cilantro leaves

For the Stuffing:
Half of a big bell pepper , finely chopped
Approx 2 -1.5" * 1.5 " pieces of Tofu, finely chopped
2 big bulbs of garlic
2 green chillies
1 tsp of Paprika powder
1 to 2 tsp of curry powder
pinch of turmeric
2 Pinch of sugar
salt to taste 


*  Take around 3 tsp or more if you like , of oil in a pan. Let it heat over medium.
*  Add green chilli and chopped garlic, saute until lightly brown.
*  Then add bell pepper, saute it lighly , should remain crunchy.
*  Add  chopped tofu , sprinkle paprika powder (or red chilli powder if you wish), curry powder (or any other masala powder), sugar , salt, turmeric.
*  Saute it for 2 mins approx.
*  You are done!!

Well, not yet...U need to do the rest like below. 

* Beat eggs in a bowl along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Keep Aside.
*  Heat pan over medium heat. When it's ready, place a store bought tortilla on it and just roast it for few secs only on one side. Remove it from pan.
*  Now spread oil on pan, now pour the eggs onto the pan, after few secs, place the heated side of tortilla onto the egg. 
*  When the eggs are cooked, flip the tortilla- egg combi and heat the other side(the tortilla side) for few secs. Do not overcook or brown the tortilla coz it will be difficult to roll it.
*  Remove from pan and place it on a plate.

For the assembly:

*  Spread the Cranberry Sauce on the egg side. For the cranberry sauce recipe, look here. If you do not have it, spread ketchup or any other sauce of your choice.
*  Now place the stuffing on it and sprinkle some chopped tomatoes and cilantro leaves on it. Place the stuffing towards a side and not in the center which helps in rolling.Leave an inch on the bottom.
*  Now fold the bottom inch and then roll it. 
*  You can use a paper towel/tissue paper on the bottom half of it to help it to stay rolled.
* And if you do not have access to store bought tortillas, you could always make chapathis with maida(All purpose flour) or wheat , of your choice.

And now for the most important step, which you shouldn't miss.


Enjoy it!
Let me know if you've tried it.
