  • Now turn the flame down. Take a dry cloth and press gently the parantha gently until it puffs up.

  • Take a knife and cut open a the parantha from one side. Be careful with this step. the hot air escaping through the cut can burn your fingers.

  • close the mouth of the slit and turn the parantha over. Add oil to the side and let it cook for 15 seconds on medium flame.
  • Turn it over and let the other side cook. The parantha will puff up as the egg inside is getting cooked.
