Paratha filled with white radish or Mooli


Paratha filled with white radish or Mooli

How could you not fall in love with such an earthy dish? Days have been cold in Nairobi lately and this Paratha filled with white radish..also known as Mooli, is the perfect comfort meal. Easy to prepare and freeze super well, what more could you ask for?  Let us see how to make it with this easy almost step by step photos.

To make the dough you will need only 4 ingredients: whole-wheat flour, oil, salt and water. Knead ingredients together to form a firm dough that will rest for 1 hour.


In the mean time, grate radish, chopped coriander and slice chili. Mix ingredients together and add salt. Let it rest and squeeze excess liquid from the mixture.

Roll paratha into a round shape and add a good tablespoon of radish in the middle.

Gather the edges of the dough to enclose the filling.
Remove as much air as possible from inside than pinch to seal.

Use a rolling-pin to roll it out to about 1/2cm thick. This is my favorite part because it becomes a family rolling time affair and it usually turns the kitchen into a mess but the house filled with laugher.

Let’s cook it now. Place one paratha into the fry pan and cook the first side for 3-4 minutes or till golden brown.
Flip it to the other side and do the same.
Add oil or butter to finish.
Here it is, you perfect Mooli ready to be enjoyed with pickles and yoghurt.

  1. These look yummy! I’m not a fan of radishes, but if you wrap something in dough and fry it, I’m willing to try anything, especially if I can dip that fried bread in something!
