- 3 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
- 2 cups grated White Radish
- 1 medium Onion , finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- 1 tsp carom seeds (Ajwain)
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- salt to taste
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 1/2 cup Butter or Cooking Oil
Mix together the flour, butter, and salt thoroughly in a bowl.
Then add sufficient water to make a dough, knead for 5 minutes, cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
Wash the radish well and grate it using a vegetable grater.
Add a teaspoon of salt to the grated radish, mix well and set aside for 3-5 minutes.
Now squeeze out the water.
To the squeezed radish, add garam masala , red chilli powder, onions, coriander leaves, and carom seeds.
And mix well.
Divide this mixture into 1 inch sized balls. And set aside.
Divide the dough into slightly larger than 1 inch size balls, flatten each ball into a circle.
Place the grated radish balls at the center of the flattened dough.
Then, gently stretch the dough to envelope the mixture completely, such that all the edges meet at the top of the dough ball.
Using your fingers seal the dough well so that all the stretched up edges blend into one.
Dust with some flour and roll out the dough into a circle.
Heat a frying pan and when frying pan is very hot, place the rolled out dough on it.
Leave dough for a minute and turn over.
After a minute or so the paratha will slowly start to bubble up.
Now drizzle one teaspoon of melted butter or cooking oil on top of the paratha and turn over.
The paratha immediately starts to rise.
Repeat the drizzling with melted butter or cooking oil on the other side as well.
