Mughlai Paratha, egg stuffed Indian Flat Bread, a Bengali delicacy which we have not eaten for years. Last weekend, I was craving for this spicy and tasty Bengali Snack. Typically back home, this is served with Mutton Kasha or Aloor Tarkari. We decided to have with spicy Aloor Tarkari (Potato Curry), and my husband volunteered to make this Mughlai Paratha for us, the best weekend Brunch we ever had. Ingredients: Mughlai Paratha  1 cup Maida / All Purpose Flour 2 Eggs 1 small Onion chopped 2 Green Chilli chopped Roasted Cumin Powder Chaat MasalaIngredients: Aloor Tarkari (Potato Curry) 1 large Potato cubed 1/2 tsp Ginger Paste 1/2 Tomato chopped 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder Green Chilli We started with making the spicy Aloor Tarkari (Potato Curry), heat oil in a pan, add the Cumin Seeds and let them splutter. Then add the cubed Potatoes and stir fry them for few minutes. Next add the Ginger Paste and the chopped Tomatoes, season with salt ,Turmeric Powder and Cumin Powder. Add very little water, cover and cook till the gravy is dry and Potatoes are soft. In a small bowl beat a egg with salt, pinch of Cumin Powder & Chaat Masala, Onions and Green Chilli. To the flour add some salt and oil and knead to a soft dough. Divide into 2 parts and roll out each to about 8-10 inch round shape. Heat a tawa and place the Paratha, put he egg filing in the middle and fold the sides carefully. Occasionally press the sides so that the egg is cooked properly. Spread some oil and fry the Paratha well till both sides are golden brown. The main trick to this recipe  is the folding of the Paratha. When the Mughlai Paratha is completely cooked from inside and outside, serve hot with the previously made spicy Aloor Tarkari and if you like some Tomato Ketchup on the side and enjoy !!
