Mooli Paratha(White Radish Stuffed Flat Bread)

Mooli parathas are one other flavorsome stuffed parathas,besides the Aloo(potato) paratha(Anjum's recipe) and Gobi(cauliflower) paratha. Mooli,the white radish is used in many Asian cuisines.White radish(Daikon) soups and pickles are a delicacy in Japanese cuisine.Raw crunchy radish is our favorite in salads,as a simple curry on side,I even cook it up with lamb just as spinach lamb recipe.In Indian Cuisine mooli paratha is undoubtedly a winning crowd pleasing paratha .This root vegetable is a low-cholesterol low-fat food,high in vitamins C ,B6 and minerals calcium ,iron,magnesium and phosphorus.

Recipe Mooli Paratha
For the dough
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tablespoon Olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
3/4 cup of water,little more if needed.

For the Stuffing
1/2 a large white radish(about 1 cup),peeled and shred[you even use the red radish]
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ginger and garlic, paste or freshly minced
1/2 teaspoon chilly powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Olive oil

To make Parathas
Step 1 Prepare the Stuffing
Heat oil in a medium pan. Add all the ingredients and saute until mixture is dry,about 10 minutes on medium high heat.
Step 2 prepare the dough
In a mixing bowl combine all the dough ingredients, until the dough is of smooth consistency. Knead for couple of minutes and let rest for about 10minutes before rolling .
Step 3 Stuff and Roll the Paratha
Divide the dough in to about 8-10 portions .Roll each portion and keep a spoonful of mixture in the center,bring the ends together and press it lightly.Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface. Use a rolling pin and carefully roll them flat,its OK if some of the mixture oozes out.
Step 4 Roast the Parathas
Preheat an iron pan(Tava) or non stick pan at medium high flame. Roast the parathas by flipping once and spread some oil on the paratha. Flip and roast for few seconds .Use a spatula or folded kitchen towel to lightly press and roll them around the pan.Serve warm with whipped yogurt or any curry.I served egg bhurji(Scrambled Onions and eggs curry) on side.

I have never made any Paratha yet and thought it was much more difficult to do. Thanks for this idea. Parathas seem a very convenient dish.
