Mooli Paratha
Parathas always have a soft corner in my heart & tummy ;-) that said I also love parathas since they are a meal in itself and just a little curd/ yoghurt will do as a side and I will never complain if there is a homemade pickle to go with it. Although I made a dozen variety of parathas at home, very rarely do I get to blog them. The reason is that most parathas get either vanished, packed into lunch boxes or served for dinner. If you are a reader I got to tell you I do not click pictures for my food blog at night, all pictures are captured during the day that is the reason why recipes that you see in the pictures will have the same colour even when you try them. Raddish have many health benefits it is extremely useful to treat jaundice, protect liver and galbladder, helps lose weight and aid digestion. Helps in hydration by improving moisture level in skin and improve immune system. Now lets move on to the recipe.

COOKS WISDOM

TIP 1

1. Adding yoghurt/ curd to form the dough gives soft parathas, make sure you add it. You can adjust the spices as per your liking and taste. Other vegetables that can be added are carrots or even cooked potato as a stuffing.

TIP 2

2. Kneading dough makes sure that the masalas or spices used are well blended. I have used 4 small green chillis to spice the parathas you can reduce or skip them.

TIP 3

3. Parathas can be fried with ghee for more richness.
