Mooli paratha is a very good option to use the radishes for people who do not like them in salads or subjis. Some people make stuffed parathas with radish and some saute the radish before adding but I make a simple and hastle free version of mooli paratha that I’ve shared here.
Original recipe Source: No specific source
1. Radish – 3 small
2. Green chilies – 2
3. Salt as required
4. Wheat flour – 2 1/2 cups
5. Carom seeds – 1/4 tsp
6. Oil – 1 tbsp
7. Butter – 3 tbsp (optional)
Step 1: Wash, peel and grate the radishes; add little salt and keep it covered for 5 minutes.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl take wheat flour, salt, carom seeds, oil and chopped green chilies.
Step 3: When you open the grated radish, you’ll see the juice of radish has come out. Now, squeeze the juice in a cup tightly with your fist and add the dry grated radish into the mixing bowl.
Step 4: Mix the dry ingredients well; then add the extracted radish juice to the dough and mix to get a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Step 5: Divide the dough into equal sized portions say 6 -8 in number. Roll them into flat circles with the help of dry flour.
Step 6: Heat the tawa, grease with some butter and roast one side of the paratha, when you see brown spot on it and bubbles on the other side flip to the other side and roast with some more butter. You can dry roast them or use oil or ghee.
Step 7: Serve hot with pickle and curds.
* For me usually there would not be need for adding more water as the juice would give enough moisture. In case you use less radish relatively or if the radish that you use is dry, add some plain water.
* If the dough becomes too gummy add some more flour.
