Everybody loves bhurji – be it of paneer or egg, because of its succulent mouth-feel and spicy taste.

Put your favourite bhurji into a whole wheat paratha and you get a filling and super-tasty dish! The Egg Bhurji Paratha is an all-time favourite Punjabi breakfast, which is crisp and buttery outside, with a soft and masaledar stuffing. Since the stuffing is soft and succulent, you need to be careful while rolling, or it will start coming out.

Enjoy this sumptuous paratha with a dollop of butter on it, accompanied by pickles and curds, or with green chutney and tomato ketchup, whichever way you like it!

If you really want to post a recipe using eggs pl don''t use Tarla ji''s name. She was a strict vegetarian and I''ve been using her recipes eversince I started cooking. Mainly because it has only vegetarian recipes. Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Yes, 99% of our recipes are eggless. We have few egg recipes. We do understand your feelings and that’s why we don’t promote egg recipes. I am Tarla Dalal’s son and there was egg used in the house. Her early cake recipes also had eggs.

Tarla Dalal    Dear Harsha, I understand your sensitive to eggs and we have some egg recipes on Tarla Dalal. I am Tarla Dalal''s son and yes eggs were always there but mom did not eat them. In fact she worked very hard to make lots of eggless recipes. Thanks for your understanding.

Unfortunately, I was not able to roll out the parathas as the bhurji was little wet and was sticking out to the roller. Made only 2 very small parathas and the rest we had as Egg Bhurji and Chapati.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, This is a tried and tested recipe.The bhurji should be dry, no water should be there after your bhurji is cooked. Also make sure, it cools down completely, if your bhurji is slightly warm also might effect the rolling of paratha. Do try and give us your feedback.
