Luweero wrap: The Ugandan 'Rolex'

Luweero wrap: The Ugandan 'Rolex'

The "Rolex" is a popular Ugandan street meal that is especially popular in the luweero region. This delightful culinary concoction is contained within a wrapped chapati and showcases a harmonic blend of flavours and textures. The Rolex is a symbol of gratifying, on-the-go sustenance that has grabbed the hearts and palates of many. It is mostly loaded with eggs and occasionally augmented with veggies or meat.

The Rolex can be traced back to the bustling streets of Uganda, where it gained popularity as an economical, quick, and substantial meal alternative. The term "Rolex" is a fun combination of "rolled" and "eggs," capturing the dish's main components. Its humble beginnings are frequently credited to inventive street vendors who cleverly blended readily available chapati (an Indian flatbread) with scrambled eggs.

Preparation Time

40 minutes.



For Chapati:


Cooking oil

All-purpose flour


For Egg Filling:


Salt and pepper 

Meat (minced beef or chicken) 

Cooking oil

Onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers (chopped)



For Chapati:

  • Combine the flour and salt. Add water while kneading until you have a soft, smooth dough.
  • Divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions.
  • Roll each portion into a thin, circular chapati using a rolling pin and a lightly floured surface.
  • Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
  • Place a chapati on the hot skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side until it's cooked through and has some brown spots. 
  • Repeat the process and keep the cooked chapatis covered with a clean cloth to keep them soft.

Egg Filling:

  • Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk them until well combined and add a pinch of salt and pepper. 
  • Heat a pan over medium heat and add a little cooking oil.
  • Pour the beaten eggs into the pan. Allow them to cook for a moment and then gently scramble them as they cook.
  • Add the cooked meat to the scrambled eggs and mix well.
  • Continue cooking the eggs until they are fully cooked and slightly moist.

The Rolex:

  • Place a cooked chapati on a clean surface.
  • Scoop a portion of the cooked egg onto the centre of the chapatti.
  • Hold each side of the chapatti to encase the egg mixture.
  • Carefully wrap it around the egg filling and enjoy.
