How to Make Anda Paratha or Egg Flatbread:
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.
