The museum gardens were a beehive of activity with different recipes of the rolex – a unique Ugandan delicacy made of fried eggs, and ingredients, rolled in a chapati. There were innovations to the Rolex, like the meat rolex where beef replaced fried eggs and the Malewa rolex, whose main ingridient was the bamboo shoot that is popular in Mbale.
