For the filling:
  • Beat the eggs by adding sugar and cardamom powder.

  • Add the beaten egg mix to the coconut mix and scramble till the egg is fully cooked. Keep it aside.
For coating
·        Beat the eggs together with sugar and cardamom and keep aside.
  • Take an air tight lid pot
  • Keep one chapathi as a first layer.(for 1st layer no need to dip in egg mix)
  • Dip the second chapathi in the egg coating mix (both sides of chapathi) and place on the first chappathi.
  • With a spoon, sprinkle and spread evenly the prepared scrambled egg filling on top of the chappathi.
  • Again dip the third chapathi in the egg coating mix and place on top of the spreaded filling.
  • Again spread the egg coconut mix on top the chappathi.
  • In the same process continue till the last layer.
