Mooli Paratha or Radish Paratha is one of the  Punjabi special flat bread and it is very delicious , one could not notice even  the smell of radish. So it is an easier way to include this healthy vegetable in your diet in large quantities.  Kids will also love to have this for their lunch box. The health benefits of radish are many and here is  the recipe!


   For Dough:
  • Wheat flour     - 1cup
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Salt & water  as needed

   For stuffing:                       
  • Grated radish   - 1cup
  • Jeera – 1tsp
  • Green chilli (finely chopped) – 1 or 2
  • Garam masala powder- ¼ tsp
  • Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - ¼ tsp
  • Amchur powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves (finely chopped) – 2 tbsp
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Oil/ghee to brush on parathas (optional)
  • Salt to taste


First prepare a soft, pliable dough with wheat flour, salt (only for roti), water and oil just like for chapathi/roti and keep it aside.

Pour oil in a kadai, add jeera to splutter, then add green chilli and all masala powders except amchur powder ( dry mango powder) and  give a stir for a minute. Now add the grated radish and sauté till all the water content from the radish evaporates. The mixture should become dry. Finally add amchur powder and required salt (only for stuffing) . Then add coriander, mix well so that the mixture gets blended evenly. Now the stuffing is ready. Allow it to cool for sometime.

Next make equal no. of small balls out of dough and stuffing. To make paratha, first take a dough ball, make it like a small bowl, keep the stuffing ball inside and cover the stuffing by extending the edges of the dough. Seal the stuffing with dough completely. Then dust this stuffed ball generously with maida and gently roll out like paratha using roller pin.

Heat  the tava, add the stuffed paratha, wait till the bubbles start to come on the surface, flip it to other side, then turn around and apply some oil or ghee on both sides and cook till brown spots appear on both sides. Yummy and soft Mooli ka Paratha is ready!

This paratha does not need a separate side dish since we use spices for the stuffing. So you can serve it with plain curd or any raita or tomato sauce.
