Indian Mughlai Recipes | Mughlai Dishes in India | Vegetarian Mughlai Food | Mughlai Cuisine. Mughlai cuisine is one that has stood the test of time. Brought to our country by the Mughals, it continues to be a favourite, especially on special occasions that call for rich food. Loaded with ghee, dry fruits, saffron, and other dairy products and spices, authentic Mughal cuisine is very rich and heavy. However, nowadays there are lighter variants being made by replacing some ingredients and cooking methods with low-fat alternatives.

This section introduces you to authentic Mughal cuisine, including a whole range of traditional favourites spanning all courses of a meal. You will find that there is a very large variety of Mughlai dishes, ranging from mild and creamy to extremely spicy ones. Take your pick from the innumerable choices we have in this section. From koftas and kebabs to biryani and mithai, you will find most popular dishes as well as some lesser known delights in this section.

Mughlai Indian Vegetarian Starter Recipes

Makhmali paneer tikka delicacy is one of the most popular starters in Indian restaurants. Cottage cheese marinated in a hung curd and cheese, strung into skewer sticks, and cooked in a wood-fired tandoor but here we have got you a Mughlai makhmali paneer tikka in an oven that needs no tandoor and can be easily made in an oven.

Making makhmali paneer tikka is super easy, all you need to do is marinate paneer for half an hour, cook and it is ready to be relished. We have made the marination with hung curd, cheese spread, cashewnut powder and garam masala. 

Afghani paneer tikka is also from the kitchens of Mughals. Learn how to make restaurant style Afghani paneer. The Mughal maharajas had an umpteen number of chefs who spent laborious hours toiling in the kitchens to prepare the perfect meal. They ground most ingredients to powders to ensure the perfect eating experience. The spice powder of this paneer Afghani, is a classic example of this.

Mughlai Indian Vegetarian Roti and Naan Recipes

A traditional bread from the imperial Mughal times, the Mughlai Roti recipe features a plain flour roti aesthetically flavoured with aniseeds powder. Follow the kneading and leavening procedure exactly as mentioned to get the best texture. You can enhance the flavour and aroma of the Moghlai Roti by crushing the aniseeds with a mortar and pestle instead of powdering it in a mixer-grinder.

Think Nawabi, and luxury is the first word that comes to mind! Indeed, what better way to recreate that richness than by using mixed nuts. This scrumptious Nawabi Naan is an amazing creation of traditional tandoori naan studded with nuts. This gives you a lovely texture and mildly sweet flavour as you chew on the naan. Once you sprinkle the nuts on the rolled dough, roll it lightly once again, so that they stick to the dough and do not fall off when cooked in the tava. Serve this naan with a tangy, spicy Subzis / Curries to make a memorable meal.

Sheermal is a mildly-sweet, saffron-flavoured naan popular in the Indo-Pak sub-continent. While this Moghul delight is traditionally prepared in a tandoor, it can also be comfortably prepared in a Tava in the convenience of your own kitchen. Using warm milk and spices in the dough gives it a really rich flavour, which makes this usable as a main course as well as a standalone snack that you can have with tea. Do not forget to brush the Sheermal with a little ghee before serving, as it accentuates the aroma manifold.

While the traditional Mughlai baingan masala uses whole brinjals, we have chopped it to make it easier to cook and consume. Enjoy this delicacy with rice or your favourite roti.

Paneer in white gravy is a slightly sweet and slightly spicy gravy for people of all ages. Deliciously soft paneer in a rich and luscious gravy, which is sure to make your main course very, very special. The Mughlai paneer in white gravy features a rich onion-cashew paste, perked up with a special powder and whole spices. Although the gravy does take some time to cook, this Nawabi paneer curry is otherwise quite easy as it makes use of everyday ingredients and simple cooking methods.

The Mughlas made use of every ingredient in their cooking and in the most unusual ways. Kacche kele ke kofte as the name suggests uses phal or fruit to make the kofta. Raw banana is combined with a few basic spices and deep-fried to make wonderfully tasty kofta. These are eaten with an equally unusual gravy that is a little sweet as it makes use of honey. A must try for everyone!
