These eggs are from free range chickens on a friends' farm. They're huge. The lid on the box wouldn't close properly. When I got the eggs, my friend said that she has a whole new respect for her chickens. She can't believe the size of the eggs coming out of those little chickens. She KNOWS when they are laying because they really squawk....

Roll out chapatis and cook them on a tava. Finish cooking them by puffing them up on a rack. Put the cooked chapatis on a covered plate in warm oven while making the omelette. (See more photos of cooking flatbread on the stovetop.)
