Special Egg Parantha

Recipe by nandita mehndiratta of

Beaten egg could also be used but raw egg is more delicious.

Ingredients non vegetarian 1 servings

  • 5 nos. Egg
  • 3 cups Flour (Whole wheat)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 pinch Red Chili Powder, in each parantha
  • 4 tbsps. Vegetable Oil, to shallow fry


Make a normal dough of the flour with water and salt. It should neither be very loose nor very tight. From the dough make out 5 balls and start rolling one of them. When rolled, spread ghee on it and fold half and then give one more fold. It should look like a folded fan. Roll it again and cook on the hot tawa. Shallow fry the parantha very slightly from both the sides. Now try opening one of the folds till the end of it. Now break one raw egg (as it is , do not beat it) onto it. Sprinkle some salt and red chilli powder and close the fold of the parantha. Now fry the parantha till it turns golden brown. Serve hot with Curd or green chutney.

You can beat the egg with chilli powder, salt and then pour it in paratha layer which is more tasty.
