Peel and dry the eggs, arrange them on the beef one after the other to form a tight row.  Spread the peas and arrange around the eggs sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili powder.  Lift one end of the paper and roll the meat Swiss roll style, make sure peas are tucked in and you have a nice tight roll.  Be sure ends are sealed.  Place the roll on another sheet of paper.
