Punjabi Mooli Paratha

  1. Similar recipes to Punjabi Mooli Paratha.  Raddish and cauliflower are abundantly found and used in Punjabi cuisine especially to make various parantha recipes. Some of my favorite Punjabi paratha recipes are given below :

Method for making Mooli Paratha :

  1. For making the Punjabi Mooli Paratha, clean and wash 1 long radish. Separate the leaves and keep aside.
  2. Peel it with the help of a peeler.
  3. Using a grater, grate the mooli and keep aside.
  4. Using a sharp knife, chop the radish leaves. Many people do not know the culinary usage of mooli ke patte but, this is a great way to use them. Also, they are quite healthy, to know more about their health benefits, refer 
  5. While the Punjabi stuffed mooli paratha needs some pre-preps were you have to grate the radish and squeeze out excess water, this mooli paratha recipe is comparatively easier.

For the mooli paratha dough :

  1. in a deep bowl take whole wheat flour. You can even add little refined flour to make parathas flakier. To make the mooli parantha healthier, add multi-grain flour or millet flour.
  2. To the atta, add grated mooli.
  3. Also, add the chopped raddish leaves. You can use 1 cup of chopped fenugreek (methi) leaves instead of radish leaves.
  4. Furthermore, add fresh curd. We are using low-fat curd which is readily available in supermarkets but, to know how to make low-fat curd at home, check out this detailed recipe with step by step photos.
  5. Add the turmeric powder.
  6. Add the chilli powder. Adjust the amount of spices according to your taste.
  7. Add oil and salt to taste.
  8. Mix together all the ingredients.
  9. Gradually 2 tbsp of water, which would help in binding the Punjabi Mooli Paratha dough.
  10. Knead to make soft Punjabi Mooli Paratha dough. If the dough feels sticky, add a teaspoon of oil once you have kneaded the mooli paratha dough, so that the dough feels smooth to touch.

How to make Mooli Parantha :

  1. For preparing the Mooli Paratha, divide the dough into 15 equal portions and make round balls.
  2. Put little flour on the rolling board.
  3. Place the dough ball on the rolling board and press it.
  4. Roll out the portion thinly into a 152 mm. (6") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. If you are an amateur, roll out the all portions of mooli paratha dough before you start cooking them.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the rolled mooli paratha on the hot tawa.
  6. When you see tiny bubbles on the top surface, flip it. Spread around ¼ tsp of ghee on the paratha.
  7. Flip the paratha again and lightly press the paratha on the sides with a spatula, to help paratha cook evenly. Cook the Mooli Paratha till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  8. Serve Mooli Paratha hot.
  9. If you are not going to serve Mooli Paratha immediately, cool them on a wire rack to prevent them from getting soggy and then put in a casserole. To pack, cool the mooli parathas slightly and wrap in an aluminium foil. Put in a tiffin box along with low fat curds.

Mooli Parathas good for Diabetes

  1. Mooli Paratha is good for diabetes. Diabetics often wonder how to cook healthy to avoid spike in blood sugar levels. To do so they need to do away with refined ingredients like maida and sugar, while including high fiber foods. Mooli Paratha is a perfect example to move along this health angle. High fiber wheat flour combined with low glycemic index radish makes a perfect meal time fare. For lunch, restrict to 2 parathas, while for snacks 1 paratha will serve the need. Serve Mooli paratha with low fat curds to make a perfect diabetic combination.
