Steps to make Kolkata style Mughlai Paratha:

  1. In a big mixing bowl add in all purpose flour, cooking oil, salt and sugar as mentioned above..
  2. With your finger tips mix everything well until the mixture becomes crumbly in texture. If you try to hold some mixture together in your palm they will hold together like the picture..
  3. Make a semi hard dough with the mixture by adding water in batches..
  4. Rub little oil and cover with a damp cloth for about 1/2 an hour..
  5. In the meantime prepare the stuffing. Cut boneless chicken into small chunks..
  6. Heat oil in a pan and add in the chopped onion. Saute for a minute..

  11. Break 4 eggs, beat or whisk, add salt and chat masala..
  12. Chop onion, green chillies and coriander leaves. Add in the egg mixture and mix..

  14. Now take the prepared dough, knead for a couple of minutes and then divide the dough to 4 equal patties..
  15. Take one patty and roll into a thin rectangular sheet. Note that the border of the sheet should be thinner than the middle part of the sheet to ease the frying process..

  19. Pinch the sides to seal the parcel nicely..
  20. Heat oil and slide off the parcel to medium heat oil to fry..
