Mughlai Egg Paratha

My Mom is an expert cook and she makes this awesome Egg Paratha which I wanted to learn badly. I always thought that it was some rocket science till the day I saw her making it. So here is the super simple recipe for you to try. I make them regularly now specially for my brat.

Ingredients Serves One

Egg I
Wheat Dough
Salt to Taste
Black Pepper to Taste
Onions/ Green Chilly/ Cilantro leaves (Optional)

Break the egg, add salt & black pepper. You can additionally add the optional items as well.

Take the dough that you normally take for making a Paratha and the divide it into two balls. Roll both of them a little ensuring that they are more or less of same size. Apply generous oil on one of the rolled dough and put the other rolled piece on it. (Refer Images)

Now roll this Roti to its full stretch and put it on the heated tawa. Cook it from one side for 30 sec, turn it around. Turn the gas on low flame, take a knife and gently nudge one of the roti's away. As we have applied generous oil separating them would be a cake walk.

Keep that roti aside and pour the egg on the roti that is on the tawa. Spread the egg evenly and put the lonely roti back on this one to seal the deal.

Now apply oil and turn the roti around, increase the flame, apply oil on this side as well and cook it like a normal paratha. Serve it with tomato sauce :D Its done!

Almost Ready
And served
