Mooli ke Parathe (Radish Stuffed Flatbread)

>> Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Hello Everyone,

Two more days.. I'm so excited! Yes this end-of-month is very special for me.. I've lots of plans, waiting for surprises and have resolutions all set to be implemented.. any guess?? Well, I'm not going to reveal the secret.. You guys have to wait for two more days.. ;)

Last weekend, we bought white radish, a very common salad stuff in North India.. As I was born and bought up there I've seen that neither lunch nor dinner is complete without salad and by salad I mean "slices of onion, white radish, tomato and green chillies with salt sprinkled over them." One plate of this salad is served even before your meal is served.. Sometimes this is tummy-filler or sometimes time-pass ;) Seriously guys.. this is one of my mom's kitchen tricks.. Whenever she is running late in kitchen, she will ask me/ my sister to prepare a plate of salad and serve it to my dad.. So, that by the time he is busy with those healthy slices, she can make-up her delay.. And after 26 years of their marriage now my dad is aware of this trick :D All credits goes to "The Great Reshmi"

Coming back to mooli ke parathe.. As you all know, I'm crazy about stuffed parathas and radish stuffed paratha is very high in nutritional value. Moreover, I use raw radish filling for my parathas. There are cooks who prefer the mixture being cooked before stuffed. But I love the raw flavor of mooli in my paratha..

Even though I've prepared this for couple of times but this time Sree recognized the amazing flavor and said "Mast hai yar.. Super" "Are you preparing it for the first time??" Well, I can understand. This happens when you are more busy watching T.V than eating what is served to you.. ;)

So, lets move on to the recipe.


For Dough

Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Water - as required

For Filling

White Radish - 1, peeled and grated
Red Chilli Pwd - 1 tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Aamchur Pwd - 1/4 tsp , optional
Salt - to taste


Take the grated radish, sprinkle little salt and squeeze out the excess liquid into a bowl. This will be used while preparing the dough. Keep it aside.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients (for filling) and keep aside.

Now, take wheat flour into a large bowl and add a tsp of oil to it. Using the excess water of radish, start kneading. If this is not enough for kneading you may use normal water. But I would suggest to make use of squeezed out water from radish. This enhances the flavor of parathas. Knead the dough to medium softness, cover and let it stand for 30 mins.

Divide the dough into equal portions. Roll each portion keeping the edges thinner than the center. Place a spoonful of raddish mixture in the center and roll it into a ball. Lightly flour it and roll into round parathas.

Heat a tawa or griddle. Place paratha over tawa and apply oil/ butter on the top. Flip and apply oil on the other side. Roast till both sides are golden and fully cooked. Repeat the procedure.

Serve hot with curd or pickle.
