Ingredients Serving: 2

  1. Whole wheat flour 120 gms
  2. Eggs 2
  3. Ghee 3 teaspoons
  4. Water required to knead the dough
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. Black pepper powder
  7. Chaat masala 1/2 teaspoon
  8. Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 tablespoons


  1. In a bowl , take whole wheat flour , half pinch salt and using water , knead into a smooth soft dough . The paratha dough shouldn’t be sticky . Let the dough rest for 30 minutes for smooth flaky texture .
  2. After 30 minutes , make balls ought of the dough . Roll into thin round rotis . Dust very little flour when really needed .
  3. Heat a skillet .
  4. Meantime , get ready with egg , pepper powder , chaat masala , chopped coriander leaves , the remaining salt .
  5. Place the paratha on the hot skillet . You could see the outer side puffing up . Reduce the heat to low . Now beat one egg and pour to the centre of the paratha . Using a fork collapse the yolk and spread it over the paratha evenly . Sprinkle salt , a pinch pepper powder , a pinch of chaat Masala , a tsp of freshly chopped coriander leaves .
  6. Now fold the cooking paratha like a parcel . Bring the four sides to the centre and close like pockets . Flip to the other side and cook it for few seconds . Smear a tsp of ghee and cook till the egg cooks . The parathas will give out beautiful light brown spots .
  7. Follow the same for the rest of the parathas . I prefer using one egg for one paratha as it really gives the best rich taste along with the exact nutrients .
  8. The flaky Mughlai egg parathas are ready .,
  9. Add extra ghee and serve it hot with any sauce .
