Knead a smooth and pliable dough with help of water.

Heat tawa on high flame and make 6 equal sized balls from the prepared dough. Take one ball or portion and make a small roti out of it. Apply little oil, fold and roll again just like we roll Indian chapatti.

Drizzle few drops of oil on heating tawa, reduce the flame and place the rolled out roti in it.

Cook for 2 minutes and then spread some mixture all over on it. Spread only the egg mixture of one egg, so that we should be able to make 6 egg parathas out of it.

Cook on low flame till the paratha become fluffy and golden brown in color.

Fold and flip it. Cook from another side as well for 1-2 minutes.

Once the egg paratha is cooked well, that is when it is browned well, the egg mixture has also browned and cooked like an omlette, then the parathas are done.

Your egg paratha is ready. You can cut into some pieces just before serving.
