Put maida into a bowl, add vanaspati ghee, egg, milk, sugar, salt, sufficient lukewarm water and knead into a hard dough. Cover it with a damp muslin cloth and rest for 15 minutes. Divide into equal portions and roll into balls. Oil a plate, place the balls on them and cover again with damp muslin cloth for some time.
Spread a little oil on table top, place each ball on it and spread with your fingers to a roti. Apply little ghee over it. Make small pleats and roll into a round ball.
Heat a non stick tawa. Spread the balls into parathas with your fingers, and place on the tawa. Drizzle little oil on the paratha. Cook turning sides till light brown and crisp on both sides.
