Mooli ka paratha – Radish paratha recipe – Perfect mooli ka paratha recipe with a short video and tips.

Paratha is always a super hit in our home. Next to one pot meal, parathas are preferred by everyone. I make parathas for lunch box or for dinner too. It is always tricky to make Mooli paratha as it oozes out water. I learned this recipe from my friend in Singapore and ever since this method works out so well for me.

Once you get the perfect dry stuffing, then you can go ahead and make the radish paratha. The key is in making the dry mooli stuffing which results in perfect stuffed parathas. There are 2 main parts to making this radish paratha/mooli ka paratha recipe. The first part is squeezing out the extra water from the grated radish. The second part is adding besan | gram flour while sauting, which helps to remove the excess moisture.
