Do you love radish? If you do then I am sure you would love this Stuffed Mooli Paratha Recipe as well. Mooli Paratha along with butter, well it tastes so great that you can’t just eat one. Mooli ka paratha, just like all other stuffed paratha recipes is a preferred one especially for Punjabi’s.
You might find a slight difficulty in making Mooli ka paratha since you will have to squeeze the water from the radish properly and second after adding salt in mooli mixture you need to work quickly as exposure to salt will make the radish ooze out more water. So it’s better to work with small quantity of filling at a time. And most importantly you will also have to take care while stuffing and rolling the paratha’s so that it should not tear in between.
Ooooops……Don’t get scared. 🙂
The reason why I am telling you all this because I really don’t want to tell only the good thing about the recipe and I want to be very transparent with you.
Trust me, though I know that it sounds too difficult to make but it tastes heavenly…… 🙂
