Shahi Awadhi Paratha is a very popular and rich recipe that is made in the traditional Awadhi Dum Pukht process. Ingredients such as ground onions and garlic, tumeric powder, chilli and garam spices are sealed in a large pot and placed over a low heat, allowing ingredients to cook in their own juices and thicken slowly.
