mughlai paratha recipemughlai paratha recipe | moglai porota | veg mughlai paratha bengali recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. each paratha recipe is very unique with its stuffing or perhaps the way it is cooked and fried. moreover each region and location in india has its own variation and native to its cuisine. mughlai paratha recipe is one such variation from the rich and tasty bengali cuisine which typically has meat stuffing.

the recipe for mughlai paratha is very unique and filling compared to the other vegetables stuffed paratha. moreover the traditional moglai porota is prepared with minced meat preferably chicken or mutton meat coated with egg yolk. however i have prepared it with vegetables and paneer stuffing making it suitable for non meat eaters. in addition, the paratha is deep fried in a hot oil so that the paratha is evenly cooked with the stuffing. but i have pan fried with very less oil as it does not have any meat stuffing which has to be thoroughly cooked before serving. even i personally feel deep frying is more tasty and hassle-free but pan frying should be sufficient and solve the purpose.

mughlai paratha recipe

the recipe for mughlai paratha can time consuming and hence i would like to pin some tips and suggestions for it. firstly, i would like to clarify the arguments of maida vs wheat flour. yes it can also be prepared with wheat flour or atta too. but traditionally it is made with maida which makes it flaky and tasty. secondly, if you consume egg, than you can top the paratha with egg yolk just before frying. this would result in more flaky and eventually more tasty. lastly, the paratha tastes great when served with spicy potato curry or aloo matar curry. nevertheless, it can be served with any gravy based curry like paneer or mixed veg curry.
