Mooli ka paratha/radish paratha – Indian flatbread recipes

I find paratha is the best way to sneak the vegetables into your family meals. Radish is something I rarely buy as I make only radish sambar with it. But after making this parathas some couple of weeks back , I have started buying them quite regularly. That is whenever I visit the Indian shops. I love the long slender ones rather than the fat big ones though the latter ones are a less pungent.

I usually try to incorporate the vegetables directly into the flour while making the dough. But nowadays  I make the dough in advance as I have to make phulkas/chapati quite early in the morning. But then I do make some stuffed parathas for the kids later in the morning. I have tried adding grated radish into the flour while kneading the dough. And the parathas made this way tastes great too!!Below is the recipe of how I make stuffed parathas.

For the dough-
2 cups Whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp Salt

For the filling
  1. Radish/mooli- 2 cups grated(1-2 medium sized radishes)
  2. Ginger garlic paste- 1tsp

Stuffed paratha masala- 1tsp(optional, if you have it)



1 tsp Oil
Ghee for brushing on the parathas


  1. Take the flour in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add salt to it.
  3. Add water little by little and knead with your fingers and palms till the flour comes well together.
  4. Add oil in the end and knead further to form a non sticky and a firm but smooth dough.
  5. Squeeze out water from the grated radish.
  6. Heat oil in a pan.
  7. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few seconds.
  8. Add the grated radish along with the spice powders(mentioned below the ingredients used for filling)and salt.
  9. Mix well.
  10. Cook till the mixture is completely dry.
  11. Pinch a lemon sized portion of the dough.
  12. Roll it to smooth ball.
  13. Now using a rolling pin,flatten the ball.
  14. Place a small portion of the filling in the center of the disc.
  15. Seal the ends of the dough properly by bringing them together.
  16. Now roll them with a rolling pin to a flat disc of 1 inch thickness.
  17. Rub some flour while rolling if you find it too sticky and it will be much easier to roll.
  18. Heat a tava.
  19. Place the paratha on it.
  20. When the bottom slightly cooks, flip and cook the other side.
  21. Rub ghee on both sides and cook by flipping again.
  22. Black spots should appear on the surface.  and should be cooked properly.
  23. Repeat the same for rest of the dough.
  24. Serve warm with pickles and curd.
  25. Notes –
  26. You can saute some finely chopped onions before you add the grated radish.
  27. Ensure the filling mixture is completely dry, or it will be mess when you roll out the dough.
