Mooli Paratha (Stuffed Radish Indian Bread)

Mooli Paratha : It’s also known as daikon flatbread (mooli=daikon), the quintessential breakfast or side recipe from northern India. It’s extremely popular in winters and usually served with yogurt raita (dip) and some Indian pickle. Makes a perfect packed lunch too. 

So here’s an easy n quick way to prepare Mooli Paratha which is supposed to be filled with fresh Mooli/Radish in dough. It’s then lightly sauteed with oil.
However, in this version, we eliminate filling the dough process as we combine filling and flour to make a dough and then roll it into a paratha.

It’s can be served as an appetizer (thick & cut into the desired shape), eaten as a full meal or great for lunchbox menu for kids/adults as it taste good hot or cold.
