Radish (mooli) is used as a vegetable for lunch or dinner, as salad and during breakfast as mooli ka bharva paratha ( wheat flour flat bread stuffed with spicy radish). Mostly people either like radish or they don’t like it at all. Nobody compromises to have it in any form.
Generally in India people use white radish. At my parent’s house during winter season just before lunch my mother or I used to pick fresh radish from our kitchen garden for salad. You just can’t beat the taste of home grown fresh vegetables!!
Winter season is the best time to enjoy hot food. Generally in North India plain paratha or bharva (stuffed) paratha is very common for breakfast. But at our house everyone used to be in a hurry to go to the school or college early in the morning so stuffed parathas were always prepared for dinner. Memories of having hot parathas in the kitchen with all family members is very nostalgic memory at my parent’s house.
I have a few more posts on stuffed parathas in the blog….
Aaloo ka Paratha (paratha with spicy potato stuffing)
Pyaaz ka paratha (Indian flat bread, stuffed with roasted onion)
To prepare radish masala:
3 medium size radish, 2 chopped green chillies, grated ginger, 1 tsp oil, salt, red chilli powder, dry mango powder (amchoor), turmeric powder, asafoetida and garam masala.
Wheat flour dough, dry wheat flour and oil.
Wash, peel and grate radish.
Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and add grated radish , chopped green chillies, grated ginger and all spices.
Mix it and cook radish till the water completely evaporates.
Prepare wheat flour dough and heat tava. Take a small portion from the dough, approximately 50 gm and make a round ball, apply some dry flour on it and roll it in a small round shape.
Place some radish masala (just about 35 to 40 gm) on it and seal it by pinching from all the sides.
Again apply some dry flour and roll this in a round shape carefully and evenly from all sides. Don’t put too much pressure while rolling.
Carefully place this on hot tava and when you notice tiny bubbles, flip it to other side and apply oil and follow the same for other side also.
If you have rolled paratha evenly, it will puff up beautifully.
Serve hot mooli ka bharva paratha with curd, chutney, butter or pickle!!

Parathas are my weaknesses Shwetha and stuffed ones, I can have them in any meal 😁😁
I love them too!
This looks so delicious. How many types of bread does India have? Or is that an impossible question?? 😉 Mel
Thank you very much 😊
Each region has its own speciality, so yes, we have a lot variety in flat breads. With wheat or white flour we create many different types of flat breads and they are cooked on different types of stoves.
And all absolutely delicious!!
Thanks once again
Thanks a lot Nisha!!
Mouth watering indeed! 🙂

Sure Sunipa!! If you have a taste bud for radish, you might like this variety of paratha also!
Nice recipe. I finely chop radish leaves also and mix it with grated radish.
Nice idea to make it more nutritious.
Thanks a lot for visiting the blog.
I have also very recently starting blogging. Do visit my blog and give me your comments and feedback. Thank you ☺
Sure 👍 👍
I have had many different types of Paranthas but Mooli Parantha is something I have stayed away with. I guess partly because I don’t enjoy much of Radish. This winter, I will give it a try.
Arv, mooli is difficult to please many people. You might still give it a try in this form. Though I am not sure if during summer you will get mooli in Jaipur.
Summer is finally at its peak nowadays in Jaipur. Stay indoors and be safe Arv!
Mooli is not available in summer. The temprature touched 45, a day before. Thanks for the advise and care. Appreciate it. 🙂
One of my favourite.
Same pinch Anjili, mine too 🙋
Looks absolutely great 👍!!! Love it 😍))))
Thank you so much 😊
True! “You just can’t beat the taste of home grown fresh vegetables!”
It reminds me the very popular street food in Taiwan — stuffed radish pancake! My favorite, and I always get a very authentic one around the traditional market.
Stuffed radish pancakes… sounds very intresting dish Oscar!!
Have you ever tried preparing?
Dear Deeksha, Yes, And,… I am going to make more when I go home — Taiwan.
I am thinking about going home. I hope the virus issue is done soon. ^^
Be careful Oscar. Speculations are that virus will reduce till September – October only.
Thank you, Deeksha. As long as we are writing here, no matter where I am, we will be in touch!
You , too, be careful. Let’s pray for all good days coming soon.
Haven’t had Mooli Paratha’s in a long time, Your Post makes me feel like eating them now! Looks yummy! 🙂
