Purple Radish Paratha

Remember a few days ago there was a mystery file to be solved ?Here is another recipe with that mystery veggie....

The vegetable that I mistook for beetroot and later that it was purple carrot and finally found out that it was purple radish went to the Paratha that I made.No difference in the method but the result was definitely colorful...These parathas are slightly thicker than Chapathis....

I used:

Whole wheat flour- 3 cups
Purple radish-1,peeled and grated
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Black sesame seeds-1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

  1. Take all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre and pour little water.
  3. Knead well and add water in small batches to make a firm dough.Knead again for 5 minutes.
  4. Cover and let it rest for at least half an hour.
  5. Knead again and pinch out golf sized balls and roll out into roundels .Use a little flour to dust if its sticky.
  6. Heat a griddle and cook the parathas till brown spots appear on both the sides.
Serve hot with a side dish of your choice...
