Deem Ruti or Anda Pau or Egg Sandwiches

Deem Ruti 
Making breakfast for a crowd can be daunting. Over the holidays we had a full house which was a lot of fun. Even though I was well-prepared to make several breakfasts, lunches and dinners, the weather did not cooperate. Temperatures were frigid and windows were iced in place and we hate the smell of stale food in the house, so we ate out a lot - a whole lot!

The Stuffing Inside
King's Hawaiian Rolls are fluffy, portion-sized with a slight sweetness that we all love, but reserve for the holidays. These bite-sized sandwiches are sold as snacks by street vendors in all the metropolitan cities in India. We love our omelettes with minced onions and tomatoes and green chilies which makes a delightful filling for the sandwiches. I went a step further and added slices of provolone cheese and sliced chicken to the mix.

Topped and Fried
Once the bottoms of the buns are smothered with the eggs, cheese and chicken, the buns are covered with the top halves and fried in butter. The little snack-sized buns are then segmented and served with ketchup or a variety of chutneys like tamarind or mint chutney, or sweet chili sauce.

1/2 pkg. or 6 hawaiian rolls, left attached and sliced laterally through center
4 eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper and beaten
2 small onions, diced
1 tomato, diced
2 green chilies, diced
4 slices Provolone cheese
6 - 8 slices deli chicken breast
1/2 stick butter

  1. Melt a tablespoon of butter and fry onions, tomatoes and green chilies until mushy.
  2. Add 1/2 the remaining butter and beaten eggs.
  3. Fry just until eggs are set and place the bottom half of the buns on the eggs.
  4. When the eggs detach from the skillet, fold edges of omelette over the buns.
  5. Fry all sides of buns and flip over.
  6. Top with chicken first and then cheese slices and cover with the top half of the buns.
  7. Flip the buns over, add remaining butter and fry top half of sandwiches.
  8. Turn them over once more and split into individual sandwiches.
  9. Serve with ketchup or chutney or choice.
