2 MOOLI/RADISH PARATHA


Chapathi flour - 2 cups
Radish - 1 medium
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Green chillies - 2 chopped fine
Jeera/ cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil

Peel and grate radish by using a larger hole.
Heat a tbsp of oil and add jeera...when they start to splutter up add green chillies,onions and fry till light brown...next add grated radish and saute for 3 - 4 minutes...remove and cool

In a mixing bowl take the chapathi flour, chilli powder, salt and 2 tbsp of oil..mix well...next add the radish mixture and mix well...add very little water slowly( the onion and radish mix itself will be very moist ...so add little by little only) and knead as a soft chapathi dough....cover with a wet cloth and set aside for 20 - 30 minutes....then take a small ball size of dough and roll out( dust some flour on both sides) as thin chapthis..heat a tawa/griddle and place the chapathis and cook both sides...if needed can apply some oil when it is cooked....this method saves the stuffing time and also the chapathis come out thinner. Can always alternatively use the stuffing method with the same ingredients.
Can also use chopped cilantro while kneading...I did not use them ...since adding a vegetable itself was a tough part for my sons Prithvi and Harsha and then they would start grumbling about the green stuff....feeding mooli paratha was not a problem today ...since they did not feel any different taste and it was thin too :D
