Ingredients
  

For the Dough:

  • 1 cup Wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Water to knead the dough
  • Salt as per taste
  • Oil/ ghee for frying parathas

For the Stuffing:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Capsicum (medium) Finely chopped
  • 1 Onion (medium) Finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Coriander  Finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder 
  • Salt as per taste

Instructions
 

  • Take the wheat flour in a mixing bowl and knead the dough. The dough for parathas should be kneaded a little harder than the dough for normal chapathis. Keep aside for 30 min.
  • Take a mixing bowl.
  • Add finely chopped onion, capsicum, coriander. Mix well.
  • To this, add salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and mix well.
  • Keep aside for 10 min.
  • The salt added will ooze some water out of the veggies. Now add eggs and mix thoroughly.
  • Roll a roti neither too thick nor too thin.
  • Heat a griddle. Coat with oil.
  • Turn the flame to low and place a roti on the griddle.
  • Now, slowly pour the mixture of egg on to the middle of the roti.
  • Lift one side of the roti and fold the roti into half and then press the edges gently with fingers.
  • Be careful as the griddle is hot.
  • Even if you don’t press the parantha won’t get separated as we added which acts as a binding.
  • Cook on both sides till crisp with sufficient oil.
  • Cut the parantha horizontally and cook by holding the parantha with open edges facing the flame.
  • Transfer on to a serving plate.

Notes

* Make sure the roti is 25% cooked before you add the stuffing.
** Do not stuff the roti too much. There is a chance that the stuffing might spill out.
*** Cook the paratha on both sides well.
