It's been a while since I update this blog. Previous evening I made Indian breads from radish; we call the dish - Mooli Parata (mooli - radish, parata - Indian bread). My version of this dish is as follows:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup finely grated radish
2-3 green chillies
handful freshly chopped coriander
a pinch of garam masala
a pinch of cumin powder
1 tbsp cooking oil
a pinch of salt
Mix the grated radish, chillies, coriander, garam masala, salt, and cumin powder in a bowl. Add oil and knead well. The water from the radish is sufficient to hold the ingredients together. However, if you feel the dough needs water, sprinkle a little. Remember that radish leaves water after a while, and adding too much water to the dough can make the dough runny.
Divide the dough into small balls, and roll them out to form circles. You can either roll them thin or thick. On a hot pan, roast the rolled out dough one after another. While removing the parata from the pan, smear ghee or add butter. Stack the paratas on a plate, and serve hot with curry of your choice or curd.
