Mooli paratha!

My friend Sangeeta,have told me to try mooli paratha so many times,but I was so scared how it would smell and kept on postponing, now, after an year almost, today I dared to try this paratha and after I tasted, I dint find any smell of radish that much I was afraid of.. Thanks to Chitra for suggesting sautéing the radish.I simply love this one and since I wanted to blog this too!


Radish,grated 1 cup tightly packed
Red chilli powder 3/4 tsp
Garam masala powder 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp
Green chilli 1 no.,Chopped
Coriander leaves,chopped 3 tblsp
Ginger,grated 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeera 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil/ghee 1 tsp
For Dough:
Aatta/wheat flour 1 cup
Salt and water as needed
Oil 1 tblsp


Mooli paratha


  1. Peel the skin off from radish and grate it.Mix with salt and turmeric in a plate and keep in a slanting way.
  2. Grated radish
  3. The water can drain and get collected separately.
  4. drained
  5. Make dough as we prepare for roti- the dough should not be too stiff,also not stick,just right-soft and pliable.Set aside covered.
  6. Now squeeze the excess water from the radish mixture thoroughly.
  7. Heat a pan with oil and splutter jeera,add green chilli,ginger and fry well.
  8. Add the squeezed radish in a sprinkled way and add the coriander leaves,garam masala and red chilli powder.
  9. add powders
  10. Mix,fry well till all the moisture evaporates and the stuff becomes dry.(In medium flame for about 5-6 minutes approximately)
  11. fry
  12. Now Stuffing is ready. Cool down completely.
  13. stuffing
  14. make equal sized big lemon sized balls out of the dough and the stuffing.
  15. roll into balls
  16. Dust the dough balls liberally and roll out half way and keep the stuffing ball inside.
  17. click for larger image
  18. Seal the ends towards centre as shown in the picture.
  19. sealed
  20. Again dust this in the flour(I use maida for dusting) and roll out immediately.
  21. I prefer my paratha in thinner side. Heat the tawa and cook till small bubbles starts appearing.
  22. toast
  23. on both sides with drizzle of oil till golden brown spots appear.
  24. flipped
  25. Serve with Boondi raita or Pickle of your choice!

    Mooli paratha looks so yummm .... luv it!

  34. I never knew for stuffed paratha, we need to have same size of stuffing and roti dough!... Thats why i never got the stuffing right. I am going to try it right away.

  35. Yummy! I totally agree with sauteing veggies.

  36. clear step by step pics.Looks perfect!

  37. Mooli parathas are a delight during winter when you get fresh long moolis. I normally stuff it directly into the dough without cooking it. That surely is tedious but has more flavour, ur version is surely a good one for people who do not like the strong flavour of radish.

  38. Love that stuffing.I made this once without cooking it and the smell was horrible.I liked ur version.will try this soon:)Thanks for the wonderful recipe Raks:)

  39. Wow tempting clicks....havent tasted mooli paratha but urs tempt me to taste...elam note pani vachuko na varum pothu ne senju thara ;) he he

  41. Hi there,

    Your mooli parathas looks so yummy and nice. I also make the same way seasoning with the jeera, chillies and a little garlic and ginger...the trick here is to remove all the excess water from the moolis..and yu have awesome parathas!!!
