Red Radish Paratha | Pink Radish Paratha

Red Radish Paratha, a delicious and healthy paratha made from wheat flour & grated red/pink radish. Though i already have had the mooli paratha/radish paratha recipe here, today's recipe is quite different from the one that i had shared previously. In today's recipe, the grated radish is mixed with the dough instead of making it as stuffed paratha, so it's super easy to make and even beginners in cooking can try this without any difficulties. 

Usually i buy small red radish to make stir fry and it tastes great with South Indian meals. The idea of making red radish paratha was in mind for a while, so I gave it a try a few months ago and it turned out so pretty and tasted delicious. Even since i have been using small red radish for this paratha but regular red/white radish can also be used in the same way. 

It's been more than 10 days since i have posted a recipe here, though i had the photos for quite a few recipes in hand, somehow i didn't find any motivation to write the recipe and post here. It's easy to succumb to your misery/sadness and being idle without doing anything. 

But it doesn't make anything better, so choose happiness and try to see at least one good thing in the bad situation and move on. So when i woke up today, i was determined to set aside my excuses and post this recipe. Hurray !!!  Finally here it is !! Ok, thank you for reading my rant. Now let's check out how to make this healthy radish paratha.

  • Grate the radish finely so it blends well with the dough.
  • If radish leaves lot of water after grating, squeeze the excess water and add into the flour.
  • Mix the radish with flour well and then add water little by little to make soft dough.
  • Don't keep the dough for longer hours, it starts to become soggy because of radish nature.
  • I haven't added any spices in this roti, but if you want add 1/2 tsp of red chili powder.
