Anda Paratha Egg Paratha Recipe: soft, filled with flavors, delicious and a perfect meal with a hot cup of masala chai.
They are an extremely popular street snack from New Delhi and perfect for any meal or brunch menus.
The colors itself screams happiness, health, spring and makes a great Easter recipe too.
This Anda Paratha Egg Paratha Recipe (also called Egg Flatbread) is one of those recipes that brings a smile to our face…… and soul.
It’s one such recipe that D and I, have both grown up eating and our mutual love for it is even stronger 😉
It’s one of those recipes that completely fills you for a good 4-5 hrs.
Or until your next meal and you can easily customize it as per your taste.
It’s basically a mix of two recipes Omelette + Paratha, combined in one for a quick healthy meal.
As I had mentioned above, it’s also one of a very popular snack/meal option in the northern part of India.
Especially, if you’ve grown up in Delhi, you’d have had it many times in your local street shops/ office or even school/college cafeteria.
Apart from a filing, healthy meal, it’s also under budget as you don’t need too many or even high-end ingredients, just eggs, wheat flour (or glutenfree if you prefer that), onion and spices.
That’s it and you have about 15 parathas ready in 30 minutes.
Since this Anda Paratha Egg Paratha Recipe is pretty famous, everyone has their own version and no particular person can say that is exactly how it’s made as everyone adds their own twist and flavors.
The only thing constant is taste, ease and total #comfortfood
Here’s My Recommendation for that Perfect Anda Paratha Everytime:
I’ve divided the steps into TWO Parts:
1. Making the Paratha or Flatbreads: cooking them completely.
2. Mixing the Egg separately and then adding it on top of cooked paratha’s to make them extra soft and fluffy. Finally cooking everything together for that one delicious paratha.
I highly recommend you trying this Anda Paratha Egg Paratha Recipe this weekend and surprising your family with a new recipe.
If you’ve made Anda Paratha many times, then I’d recommend you to try my version too 🙂
