Like all other Bengali, my family and I love Mughlai parathas, so I thought of making Mughlai parathas. If you are wondering what Mughlai paratha is, let me tell you that what Mughlai paratha is.

It's a popular Bengali street food that is believed to have originated in Bengal during the Mughal empire. It’s a crispy, flaky, pan-fried flatbread that’s stuffed with fluffy eggs and ground meat.

Usually, Mughlai paratha is rolled out and folded after the stuffing is added, but my paratha is a variation of the traditional one, after stuffing, it's rolled out again.
