How to Make Mughlai Paratha

3.Divide the dough into 4 rounds, cover and leave to rest for about 15 minutes.
4.Heat a griddle over the stove. While it is getting hot, roll out one round.
5.The dough is sticky and soft, so you may need to dust it with flour frequently. Better still, pat it thin with your palms if you can.
6.Keeping the heat on high, place the roti over the griddle, break an egg on to the center of it, sprinkle with 2 tsp of onion, salt, green chillies and 1 tbsp of coriander leaves.
7.Lower heat to medium. To seal, fold over four ways towards the center, so that the ends overlap, thus forming a square.
8.Make a trail of ghee around it to fry the underside.
9.When the underside is fried, smear the top with a generous helping of ghee and turn over to fry to a golden brown.
First of all Mughlai paratha is not a healthy food. So don't try to make it healthy, you will not enjoy the real Mughlai paratha. This is not a real mughlai paratha recipe. (1) In India no one uses whole wheat flour in mughlai paratha. (2) After rolling dough we don't/donot use dust, because the dough is so oily will never stick to the platform, remember this is not a bread recipe. If you don't manage the dough, better take a lesson and then cook. (3) Mughlai paratha is never served with chutney or yogurt. It comes with sauce, string cucumber/carrot/red onion salad and dry aloo curry. That's it. This recipe is way far from real Mughlai paratha. Please go and watch in youtube "street food in India" and you will see how they cook and food lovers enjoying Mughlai paratha.
