Mooli Ka Paratha Recipe
Mooli or radish has a very a strong smell that can be very unpleasant and annoying. This recipe of Mooli ka paratha will make you forget that annoying smell of this vegetable. Try for breakfast or as an alternative to roti/chapati. Another variation of Mooli Ka Paratha, that I shared earlier, is thinner in size, less filling and a quicker version than this variation.
