Mooli Paratha

Wholesome parathas are always loved at my home. I make them all the time, parathas of all kinds, aloo paratha, gobhi paratha, paneer paratha and theplas like carrot paratha, methi thepla, beetroot paratha, tomato paratha and more. I make wholesome mooli paratha all the time too and I photoshot this recipe almost 2 years back and forgot to post it.
Radishes are an under-appreciated vegetable like most root vegetables are, be it beetroot or sweet potatoes. So delicious, mooli paratha is the order of today. There are all kinds of radishes daikon, horseradish, small breakfast radishes that look as cute as a button!

In India, we mostly grow and eat daikon radish and that is what is used to make mooli paratha. Daikon radishes leave out a lot of water, so it very essential to squeeze out all the water. See notes section in recipe below to find out what you can do with the squuezed out water. Serve them just with pickle and curd or a dollop of ghee! Yum!

Notes
*Use the squeezed out radish water to knead chapathi dough or mix with raitha into thick yogurt

Do not apply a lot of pressure while rolling mooli paratha, the filling is will be wet and it will spill out of the paratha

Adjust spices as per your taste

You can also add grated garlic and crushed chilli for extra heat
