Breakfast Recipe Vegetarian

Mooli paratha(Raddish stuffed flatbreads)

These are extremely tasty  whole wheat breads which can be readily served with some raita or homemade curd  and can make a healthy meal. Radish is a vegetable which contains substantial amount of fibers or roughage and has digestive properties as well.Apart from being a powerful detoxificant which helps to improve the functioning of liver it is also anti-carcinogenic. Compared to the other vegetables it is difficult to stuff because of it high content of water.So  I directly mix it with the flour.

Ingredients(10 to 12 flatbreads)

  1. Radish (at least 2 grated)
  2. Carrot (optional) 1/2 grated(it adds littile sweet taste along with the strong flavor of radish)
  3. Leaves of the radish 4 to 5 finely chopped
  4. Ajwain (1 tbsp)
  5. Green chillies(2 finely chopped)
  6. Cumin powder (1 tsp)
  7. Red chilly powder(1/2 tsp)
  8. Whole wheat flour (2 cups)
  9. Oil (3 to 4 tbsp) for the dough
  10. Oil  or butter for frying (1/2 cup)
