Mooli Paratha (Maami's Corner)

“MOOLI” means RADISH in English. We normally use it for ” Kootu”,” Sambar” or Salad. But up North in India, radish is used to make yummy parathas.

Radish: 250 g grated
Whole wheat flour: 1 1/2cups
Pepper: 1 tsp crushed
Coriander leaves: 2 tbsps chopped
Cumin powder: 1 tsp
Ghee/oil: 3 tbsps
Salt to taste

In a large bowl, put in flour, grated radish, pepper, salt, cumin powder & 1 tbsp ghee/oil.
Knead well, adding water,  to a smooth dough.
Keep covered for half an hour. Divide into 6 balls.
Roll out into fairly thick rotis.
 Cook on hot tawa, turn over after 2 minutes and dribble oil/ghee around it.
Brown it well on both sides.
Serve with a raita.

NOTE: While radish has been used in this recipe, it could as well be substituted with the flavour of the season vegetables like bottle gourd, cauliflower, cabbage, potato or even paneer.
