Mooli Paratha is traditional Gujarati fare! Whiffs of oil and mooli roasting together fill the whole house when these parathas are cooked in a griddle. Made with grated radish, radish leaves, whole wheat flour and common spice powders, these parathas are extremely nutritious and filling. They are loaded with calcium and vitamins, and are ideal to carry along in your tiffin.
