Egg Paratha / Ande ka Paratha

We are entering the  4th week of Blogging Marathon #64 and cannot believe we are in the last week of May. For this week I chose whole wheat dishes and the next few days I will be showcasing dishes made with whole wheat.
For day 1, I am sharing a quiet filling and kids friendly parathas.This paratha was supposed to be for the second week of this series.But I had some handful of recipes for the kids brunch ideas I could share it for the theme.This paratha tastes good with pickle and ketchup,no need of any extra side dish and also can be made in no time.Off to the recipe...
