Preparation: Add a pinch of salt to the flour. Mix well, add water and knead into a firm dough. Keep aside.

Break the eggs into a bowl. Add salt and beat well.

Cut the onion, capsicum and green chilli into small pieces. Keep aside.

Cooking: Heat a non-stick frypan. Put about 1/ tsp oil on it . Pour most of the beaten egg onto the pan, leaving aside 3-4 tsp. Make bhurji out the egg.

Add onions, capsicum, coriander powder, cumin powder, chilli powder, garam masala to the egg bhurji and fry for 1 min. Remove from the pan.

Divide the dough into two equal parts. Roll each half into a large roti. Put on the pan. Allow to cook on one side and then flip it over.

Put 2 tsp of beaten egg on the roti and spread well. Add the egg bhujia, green chilli, tomato sauce and tabasco sauce .

Fold into half (add some more beaten egg on the sides of the roti to close the paratha). Add 2 tsp oil to the pan and allow the paratha to cook .

Eat it hot with tomato ketchup. (Perfectly filling food for a lazy weekend....)

Note: One can omit the powdered spices if it seems too heavy for breakfast. Add fresh coriander leaves and mint leaves instead.
