Parathas are whole-what Indian flat-bread, a staple bread in North Inda. It can be made plain or stuffed with different nutritious fillings. 
Egg  Paratha  is one of the wonderful recipe for Breakfast.  It is a favorite at our home and I make very frequently. The hot Parathas just off the stove top with a light smeading of ghee on top, tastes heavenly with raitha, pickles or sauces.
It is prepared with the combination of beaten egg, wheat flour, salt and spices.
