Spongy soft egg paratha recipe with whole wheat
Egg Paratha or Baida Roti is a delicious, traditional breakfast item of Indian cuisine especially North India. Its my father who introduced this paratha in our family. He used to make this dish for EID. I still remember the way he is making the paratha. He is a perfectionist in cooking.
Compared to all other paratha recipes like aloo paratha, paneer paratha there is no need of making any masala for this egg paratha recipe. Just make a egg onion mix and pour over chapathi, fold and cook in low flame. Egg paratha is often made with all purpose flour (maida). I agree that egg paratha made with maida is more softer than whole wheat paratha. But as a maida hater, I made this paratha using whole wheat. It is always better to replace all purpose flour with whole wheat in your recipes.
