North-Indian Breakfast

Parathas are shallow-fried North-Indian flatbreads that can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients, including potato, cauliflower, cabbage, and paneer. In this Punjabi recipe, the paratha is stuffed with grated mooli, or radish.

Parathas are a traditional breakfast food. Combined with dahi (yoghurt), pickle, and lassi, it makes a hearty and satisfying meal.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 4 parathas

Ingredients

  • atta (whole wheat flour dough), as needed
  • 2 mooli (radishes)
  • 1 chopped green chilli
  • 1 tsp mango powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chopped hara dhania (cilantro)
  • 1 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • vegetable oil, as needed

Instructions

  1. Wash the radishes, peel, chop off the ends, and grate with a large-holed grater. Squeeze out all of the water and transfer the grated radish to a bowl.
  2. Add in all the spices and salt. Mix by hand until completely combined. Set aside.
  3. Heat a tawa (pan) over low heat and prepare the parathas while the tawa heats up.
  4. Take enough dough, dust in dry flour, and roll out to make a round disc (roti) about 5-6 inches in diameter. Prepare one more.
  5. Spread 1/4 of the stuffing over one roti and place the other roti over it. Seal the edges.
  6. Roll out into a medium-thin paratha about 7-8 inches in diameter.
  7. Grease the hot tawa with a little oil, then place the paratha on it. Raise the heat to medium-low and cook for 15-20 seconds. Flip it over and cook the other side for 15-20 seconds, as well.
  8. Now flip the paratha, spread a little oil over it, flip it over, and spread a little oil over this side, too.
  9. Cook the paratha by flipping frequently until it is roasted crisp and brown all over. Prepare the other 3 parathas similarly.
  10. Serve the parathas with plain dahi (yoghurt), pickle, homemade white butter, and a tall glass of chilled lassi for a hearty and complete Punjabi breakfast or meal.

      This looks like a very good dish for breakfast. I don't keep many of those ingredients and would have to go to a specialty store. I think it would be worth the trouble as this does look tasty.
