  1. For the Paratha: Add all the above dough ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix together to make a smooth soft dough.

  7. Preheat a flat pan on the stove.

  9. Place it on the hot pan and cook on both sides till well cooked. 
  10. But before removing  the Paratha from the pan spread 1 tbsp of raw egg mixture on one side and flip over so that egg coats the paratha and gets cooked.
