Egg Parantha
Egg Parantha

Roti and paranthas are staple food for north Indians. In the northern state of Punjab it is very common to have paranthas in breakfast daily. Even though it is high on calories but is liked by all the north Indians. Paranthas are eaten in breakfast lunch an dinner. Also the name of paranthas is derived from its stuffing. It can be Aloo parantha (potato stuffing), mooli parantha (radish stuffing), gobhi parantha (cauliflower stuffing) or pyaz parantha ( onion stuffing). There are countless kind of paranthas. This recipe is called egg parantha because the stuffing is egg in this recipe. I used to like it as a kid. I even like it today and can easily eat 3 or 4 egg paranthas in one go.

5. Boil 4 eggs for 10 minutes.

6. After 10 minutes take them out of water.

7. When the temperature of eggs comes down, peel and grate them.

8. Now in a separate bowl, break the remaining 6 eggs.

9. Lightly beat the eggs and set aside.

10. Now in a separate bowl combine the grated eggs with onion, green chilies, salt, white pepper powder and coriander leaves.

      OMG, I love paranthas! A punjabi friend taught me how to do this long ago but it isn't easy. So, I'd buy ready made from the store instead. I like it golden and crisp.

      Good one....thanks for sharing. I'll try if I could do it again.

      Thanks Shampa for the comment and Well Punjabis eat paranthas all the year round in all seasons with butter on top of it. Yes more eaten in winters but we all eat in summers too.

      Definitely a useful recipe for a heavy breakfast. I feel in North India this breakfast would be very suitable during winters because eggs warm the body.

      I do make this but I do not stuff parantha with boiled eggs. I only roll the paranthas in egg mixture. Eggs are my favourite too.
