Egg Paratha Recipe – Desi Style

Guest Post


Know a Pakistani who doesn’t love Parathas? I think not!

My husband and in-laws love Paratha with egg for breakfast and when its Ramadan…this is a must for Sehri and to keep the charged for the rest of the day! How about a recipe that combines them both? Instead of Egg with Paratha how about an Egg Paratha Recipe? (Note: This recipe is not my original one and was received as a guest post from Mrs. Afreen Zia)

Handy Tips:

(these are by me – result of me experimenting the recipe)

  • Knead the dough the night before to save you time during Sehri
  • For the egg, you can alternately beat it in a separate bowl with salt, red chilli, and black pepper and then spread the mixture over the paratha

  1. It’s always good to learn new recipes. Never heard of parathas but it does sound like a kind of pancake, is it?

    And your suggestion of kneading dough the night before is definitely wise.

  2. Hmmmmm sounds sooo good! I love the simplicity of it too… It’s also really good that the recipe includes the parata too…At home we usually just buy it from the shops.
