Fresh, healthy and tasty Mooli Paratha, stuffed radish paratha with detailed step-wise pictures. Make the best use of radish greens by making this mooli paratha.
Recently I posted Matar Paratha recipe with season’s fresh green peas. Today’s recipe is Mooli Paratha, made with fresh radish and radish greens. I have hardly ever made this paratha as it is slightly difficult to manage the heavy water content in fresh radish. I usually resort to making Radish Sambar or end up making parathas using a similar recipe as Spring Onion Paratha. This time though, I wanted to make a stuffed mooli paratha and conquered it to share the recipe here.
The first tip to making best Mooli Paratha is to using fresh seasonal radishes with greens. It is best to squeeze off as much liquid as possible from grated radish and don’t worry, it doesn’t go wasted. I use it for kneading the dough. I usually cook the mixture briefly before stuffing it into rolled out dough. This way, the paratha isn’t very hard to roll-out and it tastes so good too!
I served this mooli ka paratha with fresh mango pickle and pomegranate raita. I usually made boondi raita but with this dish, I felt like adding fresh pomegranate pearls to whisked curd and added some roasted cumin powder and black salt. It was so refreshing! I usually prepare boondi raita similarly too. Check out other paratha and Indian bread recipes.

Detailed step-wise picture recipe of making Mooli Paratha | Radish Paratha –
Mix whole wheat flour and salt. Knead well and make soft dough by adding water little by little. Mix a tsp of oil to the prepared dough and set aside covered for at least 10 mins.
Add 1/4 tsp of salt to the grated radish and leave it aside for 5 mins.
Squeeze out as much water as possible.
To the squeezed out radish, add finely chopped radish greens, red chilli powder, salt and grated ginger.
Meanwhile heat ghee and add cumin seeds and asafoetida.
Now add the radish mixture and sprinkle salt as needed. Cook covered for 3-4 mins until the radish & greens are tender. Remove from heat and let it cool down completely.
Take a ball of the prepared dough. Roll it into a thick roti. Place 2-3 tbsp of radish stuffing at the center of the rolled-out roti.
Start pleating the dough from one side and close it from all the directions. Remove any excess dough from top.
Gently press it again and roll into a thick paratha. If required, dust additional wheat flour.
On a heated tawa/flat pan, cook the paratha on both sides until golden brown spots appear. Spread a tsp of oil/butter on both sides of the paratha and remove it on to a plate.
Serve hot with thick curd, raita and pickle.
- Adjust the spices in the stuffing as per taste. You can also use red chilli powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, aamchoor powder for a masala version.
- Roll out a thick circle and place the stuffing at the center. Close and seal it well and make sure there are no air bubbles. Roll it slowly so that the stuffing doesn’t come out.
- Cook on medium/low flame until nice golden spots appear on both sides. Press the paratha with a ladle occasionally.
- I used oil to cook the paratha. Butter enhances the taste further.
