Mughlai Qeema Paratha Recipe
Mughlai paratha is a very famous breakfast dish of India and Pakistan but it is landmark of Bangladesh and it has some history behind it, it entered Bangladesh cuisines in Mughal era and it is part of Bengali breakfast since. As i mentioned the history of how Mughals entered India and what they have left behind for us in my previous recipe of mughlai chicken.
The Mughals loved their food and mughlai paratha is one of the dishes which was on the menu for breakfast. Plain paratha itself is one of the most loved bread throughout Indian subcontinent and neighboring nations since medieval but it was Mughals who introduced stuffed paratha. Even the plain paratha you can enjoy hundreds of different ways but making it is only one simple way and for that all you need is dough and butter, but for making stuffed paratha you will need bit of work.
You can make stuffed paratha with almost every meat or vegetables. If you are vegetarian then you should try my Potato stuffed paratha which is as yummy as non vegetarian paratha.
