How to make egg paratha recipe – step by step photos
1. Add 1/2 cup wheat flour to a bowl.
2. Knead it with enough warm water. Add few drops of oil. Knead it again to a soft dough.
3. Smear a few drops of oil to the dough. Cover and set aside for at least 20 minutes.
4. Flour the rolling area, make 2 equal sized balls of dough. Flatten a ball. Sprinkle flour.
5. Roll it to a round even layer. If you do not want to make layered paratha, just skip the next 3 steps. To make layered paratha, apply some oil over the paratha.
6. Fold it. Smear oil again.
7. Fold it again.
8. Roll it to a triangle.
9. Heat a pan. Place the paratha on it. When you see bubbles over the paratha, flip it.
10. With in few seconds the paratha begins to puff up.
11. Toast on both the sides till brown spots appear. I did not use oil or ghee at this stage since it gets coated with oil at the last step.
12. Transfer the paratha to a plate. Set the pan aside to cool down a bit, a very hot tawa can burn the egg without cooking properly. Prepare the egg mixture. Chop onions, chilies, coriander leaves and add to a bowl. I use capsicum as well. you can also use grated carrots. Break the egg, add salt, pepper and turmeric.
13. Beat the egg mixture until frothy.
14. Add oil to the pan, when it is just hot, pour the egg mixture. Allow it to cook. I cook it on a medium flame till the egg is almost cooked but slightly gooey on top, for the paratha to stick well with the egg. You can use 1 egg for each paratha or 1 egg for 2 parathas.
15. Place the paratha over the egg. Press it gently.
16. Flip it and cook on the other side as well for 1 to 2 minutes to ensure egg is cooked completely on the edges. egg paratha gets coated well with oil now.
Egg paratha doesn’t need any accompaniment. But can be served with any chutney and a vegetable salad.
