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.
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.
