Egg Roti....from Laos

This summer we couldn't have holidays; therefore, we were making dishes from the countries we love. One of these countries is Lao PDR. Laos has a special place in our heart since the first time we visited it in 1996. Our last time in Laos was in 2016, and it has changed a lot from our previous two visits; however, the Lao's atmosphere and spirit remains intact.

Every time we are in Vientianne, we go to the Central Market, and of course we eat Egg Roti

Egg Roti

2 cups of flour
1 cup of water (add it slowly, you may need more or less)
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoon of oil
oil for covering
9 eggs

Mix the flour, salt and 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the water slowly until you have a smooth dough. Cover the dough with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Divide it in 9 balls. Brush each ball with oil, and let it rest for 2 hours with a plastic cover.

With oily hands, stretch each ball until you have a thin dough.

Place it over a big pan, add a beaten egg, and fold it to make a bag. Turn it over and serve it warm with hot sauces. ENJOY!

In Vientianne market, we bought our egg roti's from this vendor....delicious!



  1. They look wonderfully delicious! I like your homemade version more though.

  2. This reminds me of the European "blintze" will all those eggs and the thin dough. It looks delicious. Why couldn't you celebrate holidays this summer?

  3. Doesn't get much simpler than that egg roll.
