In a bowl, beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. In a separate skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, diced tomato, and bell pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are tender. Pour the beaten eggs over the sautéed vegetables and cook until the omelette is set.

Step 4: Assemble the Rolex

Place a cooked chapati on a clean surface. Lay a portion of the egg omelette on the chapati. Roll the chapati tightly to create a delicious Rolex.
