I have sautéed the grated mooli with some spices for stuffing. But I remember, my mom makes mooli paratha recipe without cooking it.

She first squeeze all the water then mix few spices like chili powder, chaat masala, garam masala, chopped chilies and coriander leaves. her stuffing mixture is ready. You can try it this way too. either way it tastes fabulous.

If you have radish leaves then chop up and use in the recipe.

Repeat the same rolling and frying process for rest of the parathas. Keep cooked mooli paratha into insulated container to keep it warm.

Serving suggestion: Serve them with plain yogurt or raita (onion tomato raita, palak raita, tadka raita) or pickle as a light meal or breakfast. I prefer to make this as a dinner. I have served it with homemade yogurt sprinkled with roasted cumin powder.
