Sehri Delights – Stuffed Egg Paratha
Sehri is maybe more delightful than the Iftaartime, mainly because families are together … no one invited to any iftaar parties (no, I haven’t been to any Sehri party ever) … and then what’s more fun than eating parathas in the wee hours of day :-)
Yes, when it comes to sahar time – there’s nothing more yummier, tasty and appealing than a crispy paratha … but that’s my choice … I’ve known people gulping the Rabrri Dhoodh Fajar Wellay … and some calorie-conscious buddies may suffice upon A Glass of Juice with a toast only … Any variety to add to the list??
Stuffed Egg Paratha
1 cup Flour (Whole wheat)
1 no. Egg
1 tsp. Red Chili Powder
1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
Salt to taste
Black Pepper powder
Recipe’s go in detail – in the post :-)
1. Take 1-cup flour, add a little salt to taste and mix it.
2. Add water and make dough of it. Make two portions of it and make round balls. (aka Pairhay ;-))
3. Take 1 Egg and break it in a bowl. Add a little red chilli powder, black pepper powder, and salt to taste.
4. Add 1 tbsp. coriander leafs and beat until all ingredients are mixed properly.
5. Keep it aside to use it later on.
6. Take a pairha and make like a chapati.
7. Apply few drops of cooking oil on half portion of chapati and fold half chapati on it.
8. Again apply few drops of cooking oil on ¼ portion of half chapati and fold ¼ chapati on it
(Tip: Like an envelope)
9. Now roll this triangular chapati and make it again of full size.
10. Put Tawwa on a medium flame.
11. When it is sufficiently hot, apply 1 tsp cooking oil on it and spread it. Put the chapati on it and when it is half cooked, turn it upside down.
12. Open paratha’s layer from one place 1-2 inch long with a spoon, take half of the Egg material prepared and pour it inside the chapati with a spoon.
13. Spread Egg material fully inside the chapati immediately. Egg filled inside the paratha will become solid in few seconds.
14. Apply 1 tbsp of cooking oil on the paratha and spread it all around. Turn the paratha upside down.
15. Apply 1 tbsp of cooking oil on this side also and turn it upside down again. Cook the paratha on both sides until it is fully cooked and become golden brown.
So Try and tell how was it :-)
Umm, mine got a bit messed up – I must Confess … but practice makes one perfect ;-)
