Mooli - Radish Paratha

The stuffed parathas that I knew  while growing up were Aloo paratha and Gobi paratha.Once my daughter was born, I started using any of the vegetables that my daughter doesn't fancy as the stuffing ,since she loved  eating stuffed parathas irrespective of the stuffing used .This post is dedicted to my choosy daughter who made me a better cook through her own stubborn ways.
White Radish-1(grated)
Green chillies-2(finely chopped)
Red chilli flakes-1 tsp(according to spice tolerance level)
Cumin powder-1/2 tsp
Garam masala-1/2 tsp
Salt-1/2tsp or to taste
Wheat flour-1 and 1/2 cups
Oil or Butter for buttering the finished parathas
Mix radish with 1/2 teasppon of salt and set aside for 10 minutes.Radish will leave some water. Squeeze it dry preserving the water that is squeezed out..Now use 1/2 cup and a tablespoon of this water and mix it with the wheat flour to make a smooth dough just like that for chapathi.Cover and keep the dough for 15 minutes. Meanwhile dry roast radish in a pan and to the dry radish add the remaining ingredients (except oil/butter). Divide dough into approx 8 balls. Divide Radish mixture into 8 equal portions.Roll out one dough ball into a small disc use enough dry flour to prevent sticking. Place one portion of Radish mixture at the center of the disc.Wrap the dough around the Radish mixture to form a ball. Roll out  ball to form the paratha. Shake off any excess dry flour and place the paratha on a hot skillet or tava.

When bubbles appear, flip the paratha over.Wait approx 30 – 40 secs . Flip the paratha back to the other side and gently press to cook. Continue this till both sides are cooked.Spread a little butter onto both sides once you remove from the skillet .Serve hot with pickle or yogurt.
