Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Servings: makes 5 parathas

  • 1.5 cup wheat flour (for dough)
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour (for coating)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Salt according to taste
  • 3/4 cup white radish (mooli) (grated)
  • 2 green chillies (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp carom seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • Oil (for shallow frying)

Preparation Instructions:

  • Squeeze the excess water from the grated radish (mooli) and set them aside. You can use this water to knead the dough. This way the vitamins will not get waste.
  •  Take 1.5 cup wheat flour, 2 tbsp oil and salt in a bowl. Knead them into a soft dough and set aside for 10 minutes covering with a cotton cloth.
  •  Meanwhile, prepare the stuffing. Mix squeezed mooli, green chillies, carom seeds, coriander powder, garam masala and turmeric powder in a bowl. Divide the stuffing into 5 equal portions.
  •  Now divide the dough too into 5 equal balls and press a ball to form a pattie. Coat the pattie with dry flour and roll it into a small disc.
  •  Put a portion of stuffing in the centre of the disc and cover it by folding the edges of the disc. Seal it nicely making a ball.
  •  Now coat the stuffed ball with dry flour and press it into a pattie. Roll it into a round disc (roti), but not too thin.
  •  Heat a tawa and place the stuffed roti on it. When tiny bubbles appear, flip it. Apply oil and cook for few seconds. Again flip and apply oil on other side and cook.
  •  Cook the edges by pressing with a spatula. Take it off from the tawa when light brown bubbles appear on both sides.
  •  Serve the hot mooli paratha with butter and mint-coriander chutney.


  •  Salt is not added to the stuffing as the stuffing will release water.
