The dazzling combo of methi and mooli makes this paratha a super-hit! Both radish and fenugreek leaves are ingredients with rare and unique flavours, including a bit of bitterness that is actually pleasing to taste.
So, this paratha does not need too many spices to perk up its flavour. A little bit of common ingredients to balance the flavour, and that’s it, you have an awesome paratha that is ideal to have for breakfast.
As this paratha is made with maize flour, it has a different mouth-feel too, which everyone will relish. The Makai Mooli and Methi Paratha is a popular breakfast recipe in the Punjab region.
