Chop Green chillies and Coriander leaves into small pieces so we can then add them to make the stuffing.

Now add 1/4 tsp Salt, Carom seeds and 1 tsp Vegetable oil in wheat flour and knead it using Radish juice. If required add little water to make the dough. Once done, leave the dough for 5 mins so it will get soft.

Mix grated Radish or Mooli with Green chillies, Red pepper, Garam Masala and Coriander leaves. Salt will be added later while adding stuffing.

Tips & Tricks – You can also add Salt to the flattened dough instead of the stuffing. This will ensure by the time you fill the stuffing and roll the dough ball again, Mooli will not loose much water.

Roll the stuffed dough ball to create a circular shape Paratha using the rolling pin until it is 6 -7 inches in size. Make sure you apply the pressure evenly while rolling and sprinkle small quantities of dry wheat flour while rolling so that Paratha does not stick to the surface. Do not sprinkle too much wheat flour else it will stick to the Paratha and may spoil the experience.

Once done put your Mooli Paratha in the frying pan and let it cook for a minute on one side, flip it over to the other side and apply some Vegetable Oil. Again after a minute or so flip the Paratha and apply some more Vegetable oil on the other side. Ensure the gas is on medium flame or else the Mooli Paratha will not be crispy and soft.

Roast it for sometime from both sides. Ensure it does not burn by keeping on gas for too long.
