Thousand gold coins for one paratha

One day Jehangir (Prince Salim) was bored of eating the simple paratha with kheema(minced meat) everyday. He called his cook Adil Hafiz Usman 10 days to come up with an unconventional paratha. On the 9th day his cook Usman came with zabir fala or anda roti which later was known as Mughlai paratha. Jehangir was so delighted he gifted 1001 gold coins as gift and a jagir in west Bengal to his cook. Imagine 1001 gold coins for an simple paratha in 16th century
