Salt to taste
Red chilli powder(According to taste)
1-2tsp grated cheese(any cheese will do but it should melt)

Oil to make the paratha
Usual parahat dough of wheat flour or all purpose flour
Step1-Take a bowl and add eggs in it.
Step2-Add chopped onion, green chillies, grated cheese, salt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder in it.
Step3-Beat the mixture nicely and keep it aside.
Step4-Roll out usual ball size dough and make a ball of it.Dip it into the flour so that it doesn’t stick to the surface.
Step5-Make a small chapati and fold it forming a semi circle.Before folding the chapati apply oil onto it or ghee(clarified butter).(See video )
Step6-Now apply oil again on the semi circle and fold the chapati again forming a triangle.(Basically you are making a tikona paratha)
Step6-Roll out the small triangle and make it into a large one.
Step7-Place the triangle or tikona paratha on the tava and flip it once.
Step8-Wait for few seconds and open up the paratha gently with a knife.A pocket will be formed.
Step9-Pour in 2-3tsp or 1tbsp of egg batter in it and close it.
Step10-Let the paratha cook for 20 -30 seconds so that eggs get fried and flip it gently.If little batters come out then don’t worry.
Step11-Do not press the paratha like you do with usual paratha.Apply oil on the both side.
Egg pocket paratha is ready to be served.Taste great with chutney or ketchup.
