Mooli paratha

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.
