About Stuffed Mooli ka Paratha Recipe:
Do you love radish? If you do then I am sure you would love this Stuffed Mooli Paratha Recipe as well. Mooli ka Paratha along with butter, 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 this recipe since you will have to squeeze the water from the radish properly, second after adding salt to the 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 a 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.
Oops……Don’t get scared. 🙂

Mooli Paratha tastes best when it is super hot. But if there are any leftovers, they can be stored in the fridge covered. Reheat on a tawa before serving.
- Squeeze the radish hard to get all the water out. If the radish is wet, it can make the paratha tear when rolling it.
- Wear gloves when you squeeze the radish with your hand. The grated radish can make your hands itchy. The gloves will prevent itching.
- Mixing salt into radish causes it to release water. To avoid this work with a small quantity as mentioned earlier so add salt only in one portion at a time for one paratha. If you add salt to the whole mixture, the mixture tends to release a lot of water. Then if you squeeze the water out you might also lose the spices that you added. It is to prevent this, we are mixing salt only to a small portion.
- Knead the dough gently until it is soft and smooth. Hard dough is difficult to work with.
- Do not roast the paratha on a low flame. Roasting paratha on a low flame can make them hard or dense and you won’t get a good result.
- Don’t use too much stuffing as mooli parathas can break while rolling. But at the same time, the stuffing should not be too little, then you won’t get the taste, flavor, and texture of spiced radish. So take a good amount of the mooli for stuffing. Anyways you will become pro after you make one or two paratha’s.
- Grate the radish finely for even cooking and distribution in dough otherwise, it will be difficult to roll the paratha if you use large radish chunks.
- Be careful when rolling out the parathas. Do not use too much pressure while rolling them, as they can tear easily due to the salt in the stuffing.
- You can roast paratha in oil to keep it Vegan.

Basic Ingredients Used to Make this Recipe:
Whole Wheat Flour: I have used whole wheat aat to make the dough. Use good quality aata for better results.
Radish: Prefer using fresh, tender, white radish or mooli for stuffing.
Spices: to flavor the radish I have used red chili powder, garam masala powder, and salt. I have also added ajwain while kneading the dough. If you want you can add ajwain to the grated radish instead of adding it to the flour.
Green Chilli: I love the addition of green chili in this recipe. But you can skip it if you don’t want green chili to be added.
Ginger: Freshly grated or crushed ginger enhances the taste of Mooli paratha.
Coriander Leaves: Do not skip coriander leaves as they bring fresh flavor to parathas.
Others: Additionally, we will need some wheat flour for dusting and some butter, oil, or ghee to roast the parathas.

- 1 cup Wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp Ajwain optional
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Oil
