The radish vegetable or mooli (in Hindi) is used in wheat flour to make the mooli ka paratha or mooli ki roti. I make an easier version of mooli ki roti by mixing the grated radish along with the flour and not stuffing it.
The small, hand-written timetable stuck on my refrigerator tells me that today’s lunch is either ‘mooli or aloo paratha’ with lobia bean curry for lunch.
Since there is radish in the refrigerator, it will be radish roti, so grated it and was about to mix it with the wheat flour, when suddenly thought of giving it a twist so that I not only have a new post for my blog (since I already have the Radish Paratha recipe on the blog) but also can give a little surprise to my children.
Checked my refrigerator again and found I had lots of coriander. So trimmed the roots, washed and roughly chopped the coriander leaves, added few green chillies and ground this into a paste. Then used the ground green paste to bind the flour and radish along with other spices.
I was glad to see this amazing green-colored dough with white specs of radish visible when rolled out into rotis.
It tastes good too, so give this a try and impress your family.
