Mooli Paratha

Mooli Paratha is one dish which I make very frequently. Though it needs little patience to make and time, it tastes great and also healthy breakfast or brunch or dinner as you like. Last time when I went to India , I learned this and a variety of dosa which Iam going to blog soon, from a good cook who was appointed for few days at my mothers' place.
Ingredients For Stuffing:
2Raddish (mooli) (grated and suqeeze water from it completely and keep aside)
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp salt or as required
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp coriender powder
1 green chilli (cut into small pieces) optional
1 medium sized onion (cut into small pieces) optional
1/2 cup fresh coriender (washes and cut)
***Mix all above with grated and squeezed mooli and keep aside.
Ingredients for Dough:
2 cups wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt (optional or as required)
1/2 tsp cumin seedswater required for making dough
Method For Making Dough:

Knead the dough with sufficient water not too hard nor too soft and keep aside for 1/2 hr.

This makes parathas fluffy and soft.Add some oil for in the dough, to knead it again to make soft rounds.

Make equal medium sized rounds as shown in beside picture.

Method For Making Parathas:


Take one round of kneaded dough and with the help of chapathi rolling pin (bellan) roll the dough into puri sized circle.Fill the stuff into the above flatten circle and close all ends with the help of little water as shown in beside picture.Repeat with all other rounds of dough.

Now take each filled round and flatten for the size of paratha. i.e., it should not be too thin that stuff comes out nor too thick that paratha does'nt cook well.

Heat a heavy griddle (thawa or penam), when hot cook the paratha on each side . Add little oil on top of each side and spread the oil.

Paratha should cook well on both the sides. Cook on medium heat to avoid burning or over cooked paratha. Before removing from heat , spread little oil to the side, which will be folded inside. Serve with fresh chilled curd or with any chutney.

Thanks Meena! I wanted to try Mooli Paratha for a very long time, but never got around making it...Now your post has made it easy and I will be making it over the weekend.

That's really good chandrika..you will like the dish for sure.Let me know how it turned out when you try.

Hi Meena,
Thanks for sharing your Mooli Paratha Recipe. Waiting for your "dosa mela"!!!!

I tried mooli parathas many times, never came out well..soggy..I mean.
Your's looks pretty good, may be I should try one more time, and then give up! :)

I didnt make mooli parathas for a long time.. After seeing ur post feel like having it

Mooli paratha looks delish!

I have always made these parathas by folding the radish mixture in the flour directly never tried by stuffing it rather.

Yours look great though..

Thank you Asha,
iam sure this time it will turn good.All the best!!

Thank You MT,

sure..its not a mela actually.I learnt a different dosa.Soon i will try to blogg that.

Thank you Prema !! do tell me how they turned out, when you try.:-)

Thank you Arjuna,
mixing in the stuff hearing for first time.I think even yours are equally good as mine:-))i will try like that once.

It has been a while that I have not made mooli parathas...u'r parathas are very tempting...and I feel like having some now!!

I love all sorts of stuffed parathas and mooli is one of them. Its been a long time since I have made these parathas. Your post makes me want to try them tonight. Need to check if radish is available at home.

Mooli Paratha's are great to taste. But they ddo stink up the place especially if you are trying to eat in office fur lunch.

To Anonymous,

yes they taste great..but they should be taken immedietly after preparation that too with curd.Unlike other parothas, gobi & aloo paratha, palak paratha.this is not suitable for lunch or tiffins.Try to eat fresh when they are prepared to enjoy mooli taste:-)
