Mooli Paratha Recipe – Indian Flat Bread with Radish

The Mooli Paratha Recipe is a flatbread made from whole wheat flour and grated radish, flavored with cumin, coriander and green chillies. In this recipe of Mooli Paratha Recipe I have added the radish into the dough that makes the cooking process of the paratha easier and you get a delicious tasting thin soft bread.  Whole Wheat Flour, Mooli/ Mullangi (Radish), Green Chillies, Cumin powder (Jeera), Turmeric powder (Haldi), Coriander (Dhania) Leaves, Salt, Oil   2 cups Whole Wheat Flour 3 Mooli/ Mullangi (Radish) , grated (approximately 2 cups) 2 Green Chillies , finely chopped 2 teaspoons Cumin powder (Jeera) 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder (Haldi) 2 sprig Coriander (Dhania) Leaves Salt , salt to taste Oil , oil for cooking     5   40     To begin making the Mooli Paratha (Thepla) Recipe, we will first cook the mooli. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a stir fry pan; add in the grated mooli, sprinkle some salt and saute on medium heat until the mooli is soft. Turn off the heat and allow the mooli to cool completely.Once the mooli is cooled, in a large bowl combine, the mooli, whole wheat flour, green chillies, cumin powder, turmeric powder, coriander leaves and salt to taste. The mooli will already have a lot of moisture in it, so when you knead the ingredients into a mooli paratha dough, add the water a little at a time.Knead to make a smooth and soft mooli paratha dough. Add a teaspoon of oil once you have kneaded the mooli paratha dough, so that the dough feels non sticky to touch. If you kneaded the paratha dough well for at least 3 to 4 minutes, then you can start making the Mooli Paratha right away.Preheat the iron skillet on medium heat. Divide the mooli paratha dough into 15 portions.Roll the portions into balls; flatten them with the palm of your hand. Toss the mooli paratha dough on flour and roll them out into thin circles to approximately 6 inches in diameter.As you roll them out, you can keep tossing the mooli paratha dough in dry flour to prevent sticking when rolling them out.Continue the same process of rolling the mooli paratha dough out with the remaining balls. It is ideal when you can roll out the all portions of mooli paratha dough before you can start cooking them.
