Mooli paratha recipe (Stuffed version)

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 din't 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!

    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

  40. Tempting parathas, i have never tried cooking raddish and making parathas, will try and tell you.

    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!!!


  42. Did u change the layout? Sounds more cool this color Rak :)
    I love sambar and porial but somehow never tried parathas which quiet popular! Looks beautiful!

    Thanks a lot

  55. Tried out this recipe and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks! BTW, your blog is awesome - love the pics of the food as much as the recipes :)

  56. Tried this for dinner. Was awesome. I'm usually wary of paratha as the stuffing always comes out. But this one came out so well. And no radish smell! .folks at home couldn't guess that it was made with radish.

  57. Mooli parathas watt a taste.... I tried yesterday for dinner and it made my folks to taste so yummy and spicy as in restuarant..... I asked them wat stuff did I prepared.. They said no u said radish smell didn't odour anything..
    Thanks ranks for ur neat presentation....

  58. Hi Raks,
    Awesome blog..excellent recipes. I am getting a lot of compliments but it's all thanks to you ;-)
    Everyone loves the mooli parathas. Great job keep the recipes coming.

  59. I tried this, but i could not roll the dough with stuffing... thestuffing oozed out.I added stuffing another layer of dough, this looked as if it was sandwich. Can you tell where was the mistake?

    1. Your stuffing was soft and moist than your dough. So make dough really soft to match stuffings' consistency. Or make the stufifng more stiff using bread crumbs.


Thank you for visiting my space and leaving comments,your comments are really appreciated...
I am currently away, might take a bit while to respond to your query, but will sure do when I find time.
