Put 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and heat it.  After heating, reduce the flame to low and add 1 tsp of grated ginger, 2 finely chopped green chilies, ½ cup of grated carrots, ½ cup of finely chopped capsicum and ½ cup of grated cauliflower.  Now mix them while stirring lightly and add ¼ tsp of turmeric powder, ¼ tsp of red chilli, 1 tsp of coriander powder, ½ tsp of cumin powder, ¼ tsp of garam masala, ½ tsp of amchur powder, ½ tsp of salt and some green coriander.


Mix them well and fry for 1-2 minutes, remember that the stuffing should not be fried too much, otherwise it will become dry and the paratha will not be as much fun to eat.  After frying for 2 minutes, add grated paneer and mix it well and turn off the flame.  Stuffing will be ready, take it out on a plate and cool it.


Process of making Paratha


After the time of keeping the dough is over, take some oil in your hand and mash the dough well and make it soft.  Then make a peda after breaking a little dough and roll it by applying some dry flour, remember to roll it thin like a roti and if it starts sticking while rolling, then apply some flour on it and roll it.


After rolling it, put 4-5 spoons of stuffing on it and spread it in a square shape in the middle.  Cover it from all the four corners, close it and roll it with a rolling pin so that it sticks well.  Now put 3 tbsp of oil in a pan and heat it, remember the flame will be low-medium.  After heating, keep the parantha in it and roast it till it turns golden brown from both the sides.  Prepare all the parathas in the same way, Veg Mughlai Parathas will be ready.




Roll the paratha thin.

Fry the stuffing lightly.

Close the paratha well and then roll it with a very light hand.

Keep the flame low-medium while roasting the parathas.
