Cheesy Mughlai Paratha

Cheesy Mughlai Paratha

I don't know how many days it's been since I ate Mughlai Paratha. Occasionally I do like to have egg rolls or cutlets but I haven't had Mughlai paratha for a particularly long time. This dish was initially made in the royal Mughal kitchens of India. The tradition passed on and Mughlai cuisine has become a  very important part of Indian culture. Generally, Mughlai paratha is a flat- bread/paratha stuffed with minced meat and egg. But, I have stuffed mine with cheese to make it extra-delicious and a bit different. You can use minced meat if you want. Do try it out! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!!)

Cheesy Mughlai Paratha


Yum! So cheesy! :D

Ingredients:

My ingredients
For the paratha dough:

  • Maida/ All purpose flour - 2 cups
  • Oil - 3 tsp
  • Salt and water

For Stuffing:

  • Onion - 1 (chopped)
  • Eggs 3-4
  • Ginger - 1" piece (smashed)
  • Green chillies - 2 (chopped)
  • Cheese - 1/2 cup (grated)
  • Oil - 5 tbsp (11/2 tbsp for each paratha)
  • Salt to taste

Method :

1. In bowl, add all the ingredients under "For the paratha dough". Mix well and knead to make a soft dough.
2. Beat eggs in a bowl. Add the chopped onions,ginger and a pinch of salt.
3. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and roll out 1/4 " thin circle. Transfer it to a pan.
4. Add some oil to the pan. The circle made out of the dough starts to puff up. At this time, add the egg mixture and then the cheese.
5. Start folding the paratha from the corners/edges like an envelope. Occasionally press the sides so that the eggs get cooked properly.
6. Once the paratha becomes cooked and golden-brown on the both sides, the mughlai paratha is done.
7. Serve hot with ketchup and salad. Njoy!!
