Parathas with Egg Burji

I tried this recipe from Manjula's kitchen on YouTube and parathas turned out ok, not as great as I expected. They tasted just like regular chapathis/rotis that we make at home.

My husband loves rotis/chapathis with egg burji more than any other side dish. I usually make the egg burji with lots of green leaves and use green chillies instead of chilli powder.

Here is the recipe for egg burji -


Eggs - 2

Onion - 1 (finely chopped)

Spinach / Methi leaves - handful ( finely chopped, optional)

Green chillies - 2 (finely chopped)

Salt - as required

Popu mix (cumin seeds, mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal ) - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 stem

Oil - 3 tsp

  • Heat oil in a pan, add popu mix and curry leaves.
  • When mustard seeds start popping, add chillies and onion. Fry till onion turns brown in color. Add salt and spinach/methi leaves and fry for 2mins.
  • Crack the eggs and pour the contents into the pan. Mix with rest of the ingredients.
  • Fry till egg is cooked, adjust salt according to the taste.
  • This curry goes well with rotis/parathas and rice.
