Mooli Paratha | Radish Paratha

Ingredient                                                                  7-9 Paratha
For Filling
1 Bunch mooli or radish (I got 4 pieces in a bunch medium sized)
1 Tsp ajwain seeds (carom seeds)
Salt as per taste
1 Tsp red chili powder
1/2 Tsp green chili chopped
1 Tsp garam masala
1 Fistful green coriander chopped finely
For Dough
1.5 Cup wheat flour
1/2 Tsp roasted cumin seeds powder
1 Tsp ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 Tsp salt
Warm water

Method

  1. First of all, take a mixing bowl and take all ingredients to make a dough. Mix all ingredients for the dough and knead it well with warm water. Keep this aside until filling is ready. This will also make the dough very soft.
  2. Peel and grate the radish(mooli). Add some salt to it, mix and keep aside for 15-20 mins. It will help in releasing water out of radish.
  3. Rinse all the water from the grated mooli.
  4. Mix all rest dry ingredients to it. Your filling is ready to stuff.
  5. Divide dough and stuffing into equal portions. With this much quantity of ingredients, I could make 7 parathas or flatbread.
  6. Take one portion and dust the surface. Roll out a circle of about 3″ in diameter. Place 1.5 tsp heapful mooli stuffing mixture in the middle and gently seal it.
  7. Roll out into a circle of 6-7″ diameter.
  8. Now heat a griddle and cook this paratha from both sides until brown in color. Repeat the same with other dough balls.
  9. Mooli paratha or stuffed radish flatbread is ready to serve with curd, pickle or any chutney you like.

Note

  1. Rinse all the water carefully, otherwise stuffing will be watery after adding all spices.
  2. This stuffing can not be kept for long, because it starts releasing water and become very watery, which makes difficult to roll flatbread.
