Sri Lankan Muslims are very fond of eggs. And they have many ways of preparing them. This curry made with an omelette cut into strips. The gravy is like a thick spicy coating around the omelette strips. I named this curry Swiss roll omelette curry because of the way when we cut the egg, we have to roll the egg like Swiss roll.
