Mughlai paratha

Mughlai paratha is a popular paratha recipe from bengali cuisine. It is a unique way of preparing the paratha recipe with vegetable and paneer-based stuffing. It is easy to make with all available ingredients in your kitchen also I show two ways of the paratha folding technique. It is mainly served for lunch and dinner with a raita or your favorite chutney. Do try this!

The key to making tasty veg mughlai paratha at home are:
  • Originally mughlai paratha dough was made with maida for the flaky texture of paratha but to make it healthier I use half of the wheat flour with half of maida.
  • I made paratha stuffing with chopped vegetables and paneer but you can also boil potatoes or cheese instead of paneer.
  • Lastly, for crispy outer layer fry or roast paratha on medium flame.
