Cane's signature dish, curried beef paratha tiffin box, starts by baking paratha a buttery, flaky bread that accompanies the curries. Once the paratha is cooked, it is broken apart and assembled in the tiffin box. Then the tiffin box is filled with the curried beef, curried potatoes, and curry chana. There's no need for a knife or fork when eating this dish; instead, use the paratha bread to scoop up the curries.
