Mooli Paratha

Here is another Indian bread which has radish/mooli stuffing.I made these parathas after a long time because I couldn't find good moolis here at my place.Finally I used small round red colour ones(that are used for salad) and the taste was almost same.My mouth is watering just thinking about these parathas.

For dough

Wheat flour 2 cups
Oil/Ghee 2 tsp
For filling
Radish/mooli grated 1 1/2 cup
Green chili chopped 1
Coriander leaves chopped
Cumin/jeera seeds 2 tsp
Garam masala 1 tsp

Oil/Ghee for frying the parathas
Dry wheat flour for dusting

1. Make the dough using flour,oil,salt and water.Knead it properly so that you have soft dough.
2. Squeeze the grated mooli in between your palms to remove its water.Now mix all the other filling ingredients in mooli.This mixture should be dry otherwise it will be difficult to roll the parathas.
3. Now make small balls from the dough and roll it in a small circle.
4. Put the stuffing on it and close it from all the sides.Gently pat it with your palm and apply dry flour on both sides and roll it again to make a paratha.
5. Heat a tava/griddle and cook this paratha on it over medium flame.Apply oil/ghee on both sides and gently press it with a spatula to make it crispy.
6. Take paratha out of tava/griddle when it is golden brown in colour.Serve it with curd/raita, pickle/chutney.

Note:1. Make sure there is no water left in the moolis.Do not add salt to the stuffing otherwise it will become watery.
2. If you think your stuffing is not completely dry you can do one thing just fry this stuffing in a pan for a while until it becomes dry.
3. You can also add finally chopped onions and grated ginger in the filling.
4. Don't throw the mooli water.Use it in kneading the dough or making dal.
