Mughlai Paratha

Mughlai paratha is a popular street food of West Bengal and Bangladesh. Authentically they are stuffed with egg and keema. However this is a vegetarian version. So we have replaced keema with scrumbled paneer. This is so delicious that you can not stop yourself with only one paratha. The paratha and paneer makes heavenly combination and when you will take a bite, trust me it will melt in your mouth. So delicious these paratha are, kids will love this stuffed paneer parathas. So great tiffin box idea. At the same time its healthier because of protein rich paneer.

I have made this paneer or cottage cheese at home. Its very simple to make paneer at home. Boil 1 litre milk and  add 2 tbsp vinegar once it starts boiling. The milk with curdled. Add 1 more tsp vinegar if required. You can also use lemon for this but I don’t like as it will have the flavor of lemon in this and you will have to wash the paneer completely. Vinegar is convinient. Now strain out the paneer with muslin cloth or strainer. The real taste of this paratha is that the paneer will get cooked first before adding as stuffing. So extra flavors added to it.


It’s easy and in 15 minutes you can make 5 – 6 paratha easily. This mughlai paratha reminds me of the old day’s envelops. After stuffing, its sealed like an envelope.

If you like paratha then you can also make Aloo Paratha, Gobi Paratha, Lauki Paratha. These are great food ideas for kid’s tiffin box. My kid loves all these stuffed parathas. I’m sure this is one of the best ideas to give them veggies since early age.
