Cook for 2-3 mins till dry and done and remove from flame.

Take a bowl and break all the eggs in it.Add little salt and turmeric powder and beat them well.

Heat a non stick pan and add little oil in it. Take 1/4 quantity of the egg mixture and spread it like a big omellete on it. When its half done keep one cooked roti exactly on top of it, so that when this egg gets cooked it coats the whole lower side of the roti. Then pour the remaining 1/4 part of the egg mixture evenly  on the top side of the roti . When the lower side of the egg gets cooked flip the roti carefully so that other side of the egg also gets cooked well.

Now on the cooked roti side add half the chicken mixture and fold the roti on all four sides carefully like a roll.Pour litte more egg mixture to seal the open sides and cook till the egg gets cooked well.Coat the whole roti with egg in such a way that no part of roti is visible.
