Easy mooli paratha without stuffing. Mix to dough and roll out kind of paratha. Perfect for quick dinner or lunch. Step by step photos recipe.
I already have a stuffed version of this paratha. But this is an easier way of adding the grated radish while making the dough itself.
Last year, when we went to Batam for a weekend along with a friend’s family, I went just to take a break from cooking and all the usual daily chores.
So didn’t bother to make something to carry for eating there. But the friend’s family brought mooli paratha with pickle.
Their maid makes awesome parathas they said and I agree with them as the parathas were delicious.
I asked them how she makes and wanted to try that for a long time. But never found a chance to make.
2 weeks back, I was not interested in having the usual menu for lunch so wanted to have some parathas. I had 2 organic radish sitting in the fridge.
So I thought I will try the easy version of mooli paratha and blog too. It was so so delicious and I enjoyed the lunch to the core, with pickle and curd.

- You may not need all the water as radish itself is moist, so carefully add water. Make equal sized balls out of it.
- Roll out to thick parathas. Not too thick, just with 2 chapathi’s thickness. Dust generously with flour while rolling out.
- Heat tawa and cook on both sides drizzling some oil or ghee each side, until golden brown spots appears.
- I used 2 radish for this, but depends on the size of the radish.
- You can add green chillies, ginger, coriander leaves as I have done in the video.
- Important : Make parathas as soon as you prepare the dough. If you keep the dough for a while, it will leave water and becomes sticky and it will be difficult to roll.

Will try, thanks
Tried this..But on cooling, became hard to chew.. What could be the reason?
Hope you followed the recipe as mentioned. Squeezing the radish before is very important. Also use fine grater, not bigger ones. Otherwise wheat flour quality also matters. Hope you get it right next time.
