Mughlai Keema Paratha / Moglai Porota

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Mughlai Keema Paratha is a very famous street food which has another name Keema Baida Roti. In Kolkata we call them 'moglai porota'. I made these parathas exactly like street style with minced meat, but you can skip that Keema part and keep the rest of the recipe same. The process is a bit lengthy but it is worth trying. I made dry potato curry along with mughlai paratha because these two goes very well with each other. I learned the recipe from my mother-in-law. She used to make this at evening without keema and we all enjoyed those very much. Here is the recipe with step by step clicks. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
