A masaledar and filling snack, which can be had as a meal itself, the Egg Paratha is something unique.
On reading the name, you might have made many guesses about how the egg fits into the paratha – whether it is used as a stuffing, or whether it goes into the dough, etc.
But, this method is mind-boggling. It is so different but easy to prepare. A perfectly made whole wheat paratha with the aroma of carom seeds is layered with a chatpata egg mixture and cooked till the two layers fuse and give the paratha a unique taste and mouth-feel. Make sure you serve it immediately to get the best taste and texture!
