Green Tea Leaves & Egg Wrap

On a diet? You could say that.  I’m trying to cut back on fats and calories but not exactly on sodium though.  That be worried about the cholesterol.  What did studies say about the dietary cholesterol in eggs? The ones found in eggs are not bad cholesterol :-) 


Chapati  - 2 pcs.
Cabbage leaves, julienned – 10 g.
Egg, hard-boiled – 2 pc
Tomato, diced – 1/2 of a medium size
Onion, diced – 1/2 of a small size

Green tea leaves sauce: (almost similar to the recipe here- Myanmar's Green Tea Leaves Salad)

Fermented green tea leaves – 50 g.
Garlic – 7 cloves
Red hot Chilies – 2 pcs
Sesame oil – 1 tbsp
Grapeseed oil - 1 tbsp
Freshly squeezed Lemon juice from 2 lemons
Fish Sauce – 1 tbsp
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooking Procedure:

Preparation for the sauce: (you can also see the recipe here- Myanmar's Green Tea Leaves Salad)

This part I didn’t do because I don’t want to lose any flavor of the green tea.  But for those who wants to get rid of the green leaves’ bitter taste, do step number 1 otherwise proceed to number 2.

1.  rub salt to the fermented green tea leaves, squeeze it to remove some juice.  Wash it under running water to remove the salt and the remaining bitter taste.
2.  Using a mortar and pestle, pound the fermented green tea leaves, garlic, chili, and salt.
3.  Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients for the sauce.  Mix thoroughly.  Add more salt and pepper to taste.
You can store the sauce for a week inside the fridge and use it as you want it.

Preparation for the wrap :

1.  Pan-grill the chapatti on until each side are browned.
2. Mix 1/4 of the green tea leaves sauce with the tomato and cabbage then then spread it equally on the 2 cooked chapatti.
3. Diced the hard boiled eggs then spread it on top green tea leaves-cabbage mixture.
4. Fold, roll, and wrap the chapatti around the fillings.

Enjoy a healthy and yummy treat.
