Egg Parathas / Whole Wheat Indian Flat Bread with Egg stuffing

Parathas are the Indian flat breads which are made of wheat flour; mainly originated from the northern parts of India.They can be plain or with different stuffing.Winter is the perfect time according to me to relish parathas the most as they are so tasty when served hot.This time I gave the egg stuffing a try and that was really good.Kids loved this a lot,and I just served it with plain yogurt with black pepper and salt.So,friends enjoy this eggy parathas and hope you all give this a try !!







Ingredients
for making dough
Wheat flour 1.5 cup
carom seeds / ajwain seeds 1.5 tsp
water as required
salt

for making filling
eggs  3
onion 1 large size
ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
green chillies 2
pepper powder 1/2tsp (I skipped the green chillies and added 1tsp pepper powder)
turmeric powder 1/2tsp
garam masala 1/2 tsp
cilantro or any herbs of your choice 3-4 sprigs
oil 1tbsp
salt

for applying 
ghee or vegetable oil as per preference


Method
-Take a large bowl and add the ingredients listed under dough to prepare a dough like for chapathis.Cover and leave aside for 10-15minutes.
-In the mean time,Prepare the filling- Heat oil in a non stick pan and saute the onion till it becomes translucent.
-Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till raw smell disappears.
-Add the spices,salt and cilantro.
-Make a well in the center of the pan and break eggs one by one into it.Scramble the egg and cook on medium flame.Dry the contents and put off flame.Let it cool.


-Now,Take the dough and make 8 balls.Roll one ball and lightly flour the surface and roll it using a rolling pin into 3'' diameter.Take 1.5 tbsp of filling and place it in the center.
-Close the chapathi like a pouch or bag and seal tightly.
-Again flour the dough and roll it carefully using a rolling pin as thin as possible.(Make sure not to break the pouch )
-Heat a tawa / frying pan and place the paratha on the heated tawa.
-Cook both sides of the paratha till equally done .
-Now apply some ghee or oil on both sides.
-Repeat the same with other balls.
-Serve it  hot with raitha of your choice !!

Servings~ 8 parathas


NOTES
* Adding carom seeds is optional but it gives a nice flavor and helps in digestion too.
* I served it with plain yogurt mixed with black pepper and salt,tastes good .
* You can use ghee to apply for kids & oil for adults.
