Saturday Sandwich 27: Roti John

Yees, I know it's Sunday but we made and ate it yesterday so it still counts :D

This egg based sandwich is usually eaten for breakfast or a snack in Singapore and Malaysia.

Ingredients: 2 eggs, minced beef, 1 onion, 1 garlic clove, 2 tsp curry powder, bread rolls and oil for frying.

Saute the minced beef, onion and garlic first until it's properly cooked. Then mix with two eggs and the curry powder. Half the bread rolls and spread the mixture onto one side. Place face down in a frying pan and fry until the egg is cooked and caramelised. Add tomato sauce or hot sauce (both pictured) whichever you prefer.

These sandwiches were great! I've tried plenty of different meats in an omlette before but never minced meat. The curry powder gave it a lovely flavour and we both enjoyed the Roti John very much. We'll likely eat these again. JD has already lamented that we don't have any mince left to have them again for breakfast today :)

The flipping of the bread and mixture into the pan was tricky but if you just go for it it seems to work out. JD said he was surprised how easy it was to make because with sloppy mixtures in the frying pan they often break apart but this stuck to the bread and made a nicely solid omlette type filling.

Fondant Fancies are optional by the way!

Ratings: JD -  4/5 Emma - 4/5
