Veg Mughlai paratha recipe easy to make at home

Veg Mughlai paratha recipe: It is a traditional and unique way of making paratha with paneer or potato stuffing. Nevertheless, it is a classic dish that comes from the delicious and flavored Bengali cuisine. Like other paratha recipes, it is served during lunch and dinner and is preferred with any type of curry.

Every paratha recipe is very unique due to its filling and its cooking and frying methods. It is made differently in different places in India. The Mughlai Paratha recipe is one such delicious recipe that comes from Bengali cuisine, in which meat filling is usually used.

Mughlai paratha

The Mughlai recipe is unique compared to the paratha recipe stuffed with other vegetables. A traditional Mogalai parotta is made with minced chicken or mutton stuffing wrapped in egg yolk. But I have made it with vegetables and cheese stuffing so that even vegetarian people can eat it. This paratha is made by deep-frying it in hot oil so that it is evenly cooked with stuffing. 

But I fry it with very little oil in the pan as there is no meat filling in it which has to be cooked from the inside before serving. I think that deep-frying makes it tastier and does not have any difficulty cooking, but frying the pan also cooks it.

It takes time to make a Mughlai recipe, so I would like to give some suggestions and advice. If we talk about maida and flour, yes it can be made from wheat flour too. But traditionally, it is made from maida, which makes it flaky and tasty. If you eat eggs, you can also apply egg yolk before frying them. 

This makes it even more flaky and tasty. Paratha tastes delicious when served with spiced potato curry or potato pea curry. Nevertheless, it can be served with any type of curries such as paneer or mixed veg curry.
