Mix ½ teaspoon lemon juice, a pinch of coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, salt and ½ teaspoon red chilli powder. Marinate the chicken and keep it in the refrigerator for at least an hour. (For best results refrigerate it overnight).
In a pan, heat some oil and add garlic. Sauté for about 30 seconds and add the finely chopped onions with a pinch of salt. Fry until translucent, then add the ginger and sauté for about a minute. Add turmeric, red chilli powder, cumin, coriander powder and stir well.
Add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes. Then add about ¼ cup of water and salt to taste. Mix well and place a lid. Continue cooking the chicken on medium heat for about 5-6 minutes. Open the lid and let the water reduce. After the chicken becomes dry, switch off the flame.
Heat a skillet on medium flame and place one paratha once the skillet becomes hot. Cook the paratha about 80% on both sides and keep it aside. Switch the flame to low and add some oil. Add the beaten egg and spread it well around the skillet. Immediately add the cooked paratha and press it on the egg to join them together. After a minute, flip the paratha and cook for 30 seconds.
Add some of the chicken filling on the paratha. Add some diced onions, sprinkle some chaat masala and chopped mint and coriander leaves on top. Squeeze some lemon juice and roll it up to form a wrap.
Serve hot with the sauce of your choice.
