Welcome to Anupma’s kitchen. Here we will learn about how to make Egg Paratha with two different methods.
A) How to prepare egg paratha with double layer method?
- Desi ghee/clarified butter, as needed
- Whole wheat dough for making two thin rotis
- 1 egg
- 1 small onion, chopped
- A green chilli, chopped
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- One fourth tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp red chilli powder
- 1-2 tsp hara dhania/cilantro, chopped
Double layered egg paratha recipe
First, we will prepare the egg stuffing for the paratha. Break the egg and add all the chopped onion, all the spices, cilantro, and salt. Whisk the egg lightly until the ingredients get mixed.
Do not over whisk as the egg will become thin. Keep aside and keep the tawa for heating up. Keep it on low heat, and while it heats, roll out two thin rotis.
Dust your hands with some dry flour, and take half the dough and roll into a ball. Then dunk in the dry flour and roll it out into a thin round roti with a rolling pin.
Dust more dry flour if needed. Roll out the second roti to the same size. Check if the tawa is hot by smearing a little dough on it. It should start browning immediately.
When the tawa is hot, spread a little ghee over it. Now place one roti over it and spread the egg mixture over it.
Ensure you do not spread the mixture too close to the edges.
Then place the other roti over this and seal around the edges by pressing lightly with the fingers. Once this is done, loosen the paratha and flip it over carefully.
Spread a little desi ghee on this side as well. Press the edges of the paratha with the flipper. It will seal the edges firmly as well as cook the paratha.
Flip the paratha and spread some ghee on this side too. Keep flipping the paratha and pressing on the edges frequently until the paratha is crisp and browned nicely on both sides.
Pressing on the sides will ensure the edges do not remain undercooked as the paratha will puff up in the middle as the egg gets cooked.
When the paratha is crisp and brown on both sides and has puffed up, indicating the egg is cooked, remove the paratha and serve.
Serve the stuffed egg paratha with pickle or raita. Now our delicious and yummy Egg Paratha is ready. Share this recipe with your friends.

Egg paratha recipe by folding method
Two parathas can be prepared with one egg. This recipe is perfect for kids. To make instant crispy egg paratha, take a cup of all-purpose flour in a bowl. Quantity is the same as that of a regular teacup.
Now add a pinch of salt add two teaspoons refined oil and a pinch of baking soda. Mix all ingredients and add water gradually to make a soft dough. It is an instant crispy tiffin recipe.
This flaky egg paratha can be made with little ingredients. So friends, here we will use only 1/4 cup of water to make the soft dough. For the preparation of Crispy Egg Paratha 4 balls can be easily prepared from this soft dough.
Now cover with a lid & keep these dough balls aside for 5 minutes. Now take two eggs in a different bowl, we need two eggs to make four egg parathas.
Add1 1/2 teaspoon salt, one medium-sized chopped onion & give it a good mix. Now add two chopped green chillies. You can skip green chillies if you like to prepare this paratha for kids.
Now give it a good mix. Now add 1/4 teaspoon freshly crushed black pepper powder, a pinch of turmeric powder, freshly chopped coriander leaves and one tablespoon tomato chilli sauce & mix it well.
Keep this mixture aside, Now make very thin chapati with these balls. Take one ball at a time and sprinkle all-purpose flour and roll it into the shape of chapati.
Remember that chapati should be very thin. So you can use small balls to make thinner chapati. Now we have to fry these chapatis to make crispy egg paratha.
Preheat a tawa (Wok) and grease it with refined oil with the help of a brush. If the brush is unavailable to you, then you can use tissue paper. Lower the flame and place a chapati into the tawa.
Now add 2 – 3 teaspoons egg mixture into it and spread it. Fold the chapati and fry the egg paratha from both sides with refined oil. Pour oil as needed and fry egg paratha till the colour changes to a golden brown.
Prepare all egg parathas, as mentioned above. Now our instant Crispy Egg Paratha is ready, and it is delicious. Serve it with tomato sauce. Try this recipe at home. If you enjoy this crispy egg paratha recipe, share it with your friends.
