Ingredients
  

For the wrap

  • 250 g all-purpose flour maida
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • 10-12 g Refined oil/ dalda
  • Warm water

For the filling

  • 3 eggs
  • Onions Chopped
  • Green chilies Chopped
  • 1 Gandharaj lime/normal lime
  • 2 tbsp chat masala
  • 1-2 tbsp rock salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper powder
  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • Capsicum
  • carrot optional
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Red chili sauce
  • green chili sauce optional
  • Vegetable oil

Instructions
 

Pepare the outer wrap or paratha

  • To make the wrap add all-purpose flour to a bowl.
  • Then add salt, sugar accordingly, and refined oil or dalda to the flour.
  • Mix all the ingredients well until the oil is uniformly dispersed over the flour.
  • Rub the flour properly between the fingers until the flour gives a flaky texture.
  • Now add warm water to the mixture and knead the dough for about 7-10 minutes until it turns soft and smooth.
  • Add a little bit of refined oil for coating the dough.
  • Now cover the bowl and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Prepare the filling

  • Now chop all the veggies that you would like to include as a filling in the egg roll. I prefer to add finely sliced onions, cucumber, and green chilies.
  • Chop all these veggies and pickle those with lime.
  • You can use “Gandharaj lime” for pickling. If you do not have Gandharaj lime you can use normal lime also.
  • If you want, you can include other veggies like carrot and capsicum too.

Fry the outer wrap or paratha

  • Now take out the dough and roll it in the shape of paratha with flour and oil.
  • On the other side, beat the eggs with salt, a pinch of red chili powder, and black pepper, and keep it aside.
  • Now heat 4 tbsp of oil in a nonstick frying pan.
  • Place the paratha on it and fry it until both sides turn golden brown.
  • Try to make the Paratha more crispy and uniformly crusted by rotating and flipping the paratha continuously.
  • Make sure that the sides of parathas are well crispy and fried too.
  • Now spread the beaten egg over it.
  • Then again turn the paratha upside down to fry the side with the egg.
  • After the egg is fried and settles well, transfer the paratha to a dish with the egg facing upwards.

Prepare the egg roll

  • Now add a row of the pickled veggies in the center of the paratha.
  • Sprinkle the chat masala over it and also add rock salt and black pepper.
  • If you want you can also add some extra stuff like tomato ketchup and chili sauce to make it more spicy and tangy.
  • Add some lime juice over it.
  • Now roll the paratha and make sure all the fillings are enclosed within the paratha.
  • Now wrap the paratha around the ⅔ rd portion of the roll and tuck the excess part at the bottom.
  • Kolkata style egg roll is now ready.
