Egg & Cheese Stuffed Paratha

No mood to cook a full meal? But something tasty... Thats me since a last few days.. the winter laziness and preparing to host some guests next week.. I am just not cooking a full meal.. And resorting to my good old fav CHEESE & EGG PARATHA..

I recall as a kiddo I used to wait eagerly for saturdays as mom used to make us egg parathas for brunch.. I am sure each one of us would have such cute memories from childhood and food that we had then and miss now... I don miss the paratha thou but miss it being made by mom :))

This might be the easiest recipe of a paratha and I assure you that you would love it .. and your kids would hog on it...

Wheat Flour - 1.5 cups
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Cheese (grated)
Black Pepper - to taste
Red Chilli Powder - to taste
Oil/ Ghee (for frying)

Combine the first three ingredients (flour, salt, oil) to form a dough by adding required water. Knead the dough well and refrigerate for a while in a air-tight container.

In a small bowl, whisk an egg with 1 teaspoon milk, cheese, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

Take a lemon size balls out of the dough and flatten it with a roller. Sprinkle little oil and a pinch of red pepper over the paratha. Gather this make into a ball with your hands and gently roll out a paratha again.
Heat a tava on a medium flame. Place the paratha on the tava and apply a little oil/ghee. Flip it over and apply a little oil/ ghee again. As the paratha swells, make a small slit with a knife and pour the whisked egg mixture over the paratha (the egg should fall inside the slit and over the paratha as well) Cook well from both sides.
Hot Egg & Cheese Paratha is ready to serve. Goes perfect with tomato ketchup :))
