Ingredients For the dough

  • Wheat flour – 2 cups
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – as required

For the stuffing

  • Grated Mooli / Radish  –  1 cup
  • Green chilies finely chopped  – 2
  • Garlic finely chopped – 1 large clove
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Red chili powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  • Dry mango powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin seeds  – 1/2  tsp
  • Coriander leaves finely chopped  – 2 tbsp
  • Salt – as required

Method:

  • Grate the radish and squeeze out as much water as you can. You can use this water to make the dough.
  • In a large bowl add the flour and salt, mix it well. Then add the radish water little by little to make a soft dough. Add the oil and knead it well. Keep it aside covered  for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add all the ingredients from green chilies to salt to the grated radish ( Do squeeze out the excess water if any from the grated radish) . Slightly crush the cumin seeds, finely chopped green chilies and garlic before adding. You can add radish leaves if you wish to instead of the coriander leaves.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions and make small balls. Flatten each  ball a little and place the stuffing inside, then bring all the edges together and seal it completely so that the stuffing doesn’t come out. Now roll this with a rolling pin to make a paratha to the thickness you desire.
  • Heat a tawa and shallow fry with oil or butter on both sides on medium flame till golden brown.
  • Serve hot with curd (sprinkled with pepper) and any pickle of your choice.

Variation: For those who do not wish to make a stuffed paratha, here is a simple method to make these yummy parathas quickly.
