mooli-paratha
I already have a stuffed version of mooli paratha. But this is an easier way of adding the grated radish while making the dough itself. Last year when we went to Bali for a weekend along with a friend’s family, I went just to take a break from cooking and all the usual daily chores, so didn’t bother to make something to carry for eating there. But the friend’s family brought mooli paratha with pickle. Their maid makes awesome parathas they said and I agree with them as the parathas were delicious. I asked them how she makes and wanted to try that for a long time. But never found a chance to make. 2 weeks back, I was not interested in having the usual menu for lunch so wanted to have some parathas. I had 2 organic radish sitting in the fridge. So I thought I will try mooli paratha and blog too. It was so so delicious and I enjoyed the lunch to the core, with pickle and curd.

Easy mooli paratha recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Dinner/ Lunch
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 4

Ingredients

Grated radish - 3/4 cup

Wheat flour/ Atta - 1 cup

Red chilli powder - 1 & 1/4 tsp

Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Jeera/ cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Salt - As needed

Oil/ ghee  - As needed

Grated radish - 3/4 cup

Wheat flour/ Atta - 1 cup

Red chilli powder - 1 & 1/4 tsp

Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Jeera/ cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Salt - As needed

Oil/ ghee  - As needed


Method

  1. Peel and grate the radish in a grater and mix little salt with it, keep aside for 10 mins.
  2. 1-radish
  3. You will be able to squeeze out a whole lot of water from this grated radish, do not discard this water, save it. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, use the squeezed out water to make dough instead of water.
  4. squeeze
  5. You may not need all the water as radish itself is moist, so carefully add water. Make equal sized balls out of it.
  6. 3-roll
  7. Roll out to thick parathas. Not too thick, just with 2 chapathi’s thickness. Dust generously with flour while rolling out.
  8. 4-roll
  9. Heat tawa and cook on both sides drizzling some oil or ghee each side, until golden brown spots appears.
  10. 5-cook

Notes

    • I used 2 radish for this, but depends on the size of the radish.
    • You can add green chillies too in the dough.
    • Important : Make parathas as soon as you prepare the dough. If you keep the dough for a while, it will leave water and becomes sticky and it will be difficult to roll.

Healthy and tasty parathas goes well with simply pickle and curd, you wont even know it has radish. I love it hot.
