Mooli Paratha / Radish Paratha

Today’s post is a healthy paratha, which is made with radish.  I used to make this paratha few years back (though not in the same way), but stopped making it when aloo paratha started taking preference over other parathas.  Recently, I got a request from a reader asking for recipes with radish.  Though I gave the suggestion as radish paratha, but she was worried about the raw smell of radish.  So here’s the recipe for her..

Grown underground, radish is a white tuber packed with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that can not only add years to your life but can help you fight diseases like cancer and diabetes.   Radish has anti-hypertensive properties that help control hypertension or high blood pressure. Containing potassium, radish helps in countering the ill-effects of a diet high in sodium thus keeping your blood pressure in check.

6.  Roll each ball into a thick circle, add each radish ball in the middle, and seal it nicely.
