Makai Mooli Paratha Recipe/ Makki Mooli Di Roti

For letter m I wanted to make Makki Ki Roti but it goes well with mah ki dal or sarson ka saag. Since saag making takes lot of time and I didn’t have that much time and mah ki dal we had a day before, so I dropped the idea of making makki ki roti. Next in row was mooli paratha, but when I checked, it was already on my blog. Then it occurred to me why not to make mooli makki roti. That way both of my shortlisted ingredients will be in one paratha only. Moreover, all in the family love to have it especially mom and dad.

Makai Mooli Paratha

Mooli paratha and makai mooli paratha are regular in my home during winter. I try to include mooli in our diet during winters either in the form of salad, side dish or parathas. These are rich in nutrients and provide lot of health benefits like it helps to treat jaundice, piles, urinary disorders etc. Being high on fibre and water content, it helps in weight loss. Not only the root, its leaves and fruit (moongra) are also beneficial. I use leaves to make mooli ki bhurj.

Since radish root and leaves both have lot of health benefits, so I waste none of these. When I make makai mooli paratha, along with grated radish, I add soft leaves of mooli too. This helps to avoid wastage of healthy leaves at the same time makes parathas crispier.

So finally, my today’s post under letter ‘M’ for the theme A to Z Indian Flatbreads  is ‘Makai Mooli Paratha and that became my lunch today…..Mooli Makki Roti with boondi raita and butter.

  1. Makai Mooli Paratha looks awesome , yes serving Makai ki Roti with saag or daal it simply gets highlighted , but for sure it tastes wonderful with mooli and it’s leaves .
    In fact this is one roti that I make very regularly in winters , I too never waste the greens , they taste so good even if raw are consumed.

  2. I made makki di roti for the first time at home and was feeling really will have to try your version of adding mooli and mooli leaves. Looks so tempting with butter.

  3. You have managed to combine both so well!. We love mooli paratha and make an onion chutney as side dish. Blending it in corn flour is a great idea and such a healthy rotis too..

  4. wow Ritu muh mein pani aa gaya. Looking at these makai mooli paratha makes me drooling over the screen. especially in winters, these parathas taste heavenly. and I believe mooli and makki both have a perfect combination and compliment each other in taste.

  5. I have never used radish greens! Must try using them in such recipes in future. And the first pic with that melted butter on the makai mooli paratha looks extremely inviting!
