Recipe: Egg Roti with condensed milk

Egg Roti Recipe

Burmese egg roti is a delectable snack that combines the crispy texture of the panfried roti bread with sweet and savory egg. This dish is a popular street food in Myanmar, and it has become one of the most popular snacks at Tea Garden at Borderline Collective in Mae Sot. The egg roti is very easy to make, and it is perfect as a sweet breakfast or as an afternoon snack along with a cup of tea.

Recipe and Notes by Chef Nge Nge

You can customize the roti anyway you like. I have even had guests in the Tea Garden restaurant ordering egg roti without egg(!).

Roti: If you don’t have access to roti bread, you can use wheat flour tortillas as a substitute. The tortillas will work just as well and will still provide a crispy texture to the dish. You can also add other ingredients to the dish, such as chopped scallions and cheese.

Drizzle sugar and sweetened condensed milk over the eggs and roti bread. You can add as much or as little condensed milk as you like, depending on your preference. The condensed milk adds a creamy sweetness to the dish and balances out the savory flavor of the eggs.

Ingredients

  • ¼ teaspoon ¼ salt

  • 1-2 tablespoons 1-2 oil for frying

Directions

  • Add salt and sugar, and beat the eggs.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the roti for about 1 minute.
  • Spread the beaten eggs over the roti. Fold the sides of the roti towards the center, so it looks like a flat burrito.
  • Fry the roti 2-3 minutes on each side, so the outer layer gets crispy and golden brown.
  • Cut into bite-sized pieces. Drizzle with sugar and serve with condensed milk.
