Everybody loves bhurji – be it of paneer or egg, because of its succulent mouth-feel and spicy taste.

Put your favourite bhurji into a whole wheat paratha and you get a filling and super-tasty dish! The Egg Bhurji Paratha is an all-time favourite Punjabi breakfast, which is crisp and buttery outside, with a soft and masaledar stuffing. Since the stuffing is soft and succulent, you need to be careful while rolling, or it will start coming out.

Enjoy this sumptuous paratha with a dollop of butter on it, accompanied by pickles and curds, or with green chutney and tomato ketchup, whichever way you like it!
