1/2 cup water or as needed

3 Eggs

1/2 medium onion finely chopped

1 green chilly finely chopped

coriander finely chopped

3 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp red chilly powder

Salt to taste.


1.Mix wheat flour and water and form a smooth dough.

2.Divide dough into six equal parts.

3.Take one part and roll it 2 inch diameter and apply oil in its surface properly.Now fold it in order to form a semi circle and again apply oil in its surface properly.Now fold it to form a triangle.Roll it to form paratha of approx. 7-8 inches.Keep it aside.

4.Repeat the same process for rest of 5 parts of dough to form paratha.

5.Now to prepare egg mixture mix egg's white and yellow part with onions,tomatoes,coriander,green chilly,salt and chilly powder.Mix the whole mix really well so that all the contents have mixed with each other.

5.Now toss the paratha the other way and put oil and fry it the way you did for other paratha(see aaloo paratha,mooli paratha etc.)
