You might have tried mooli ka paratha several times in your life. You may like mooli paratha for breakfast. It might be your favorite breakfast on weekends. But you probably did not taste the tastiest mooli ka paratha in your life. Yes, you missed it. You have no idea how much delicious it could be if you prepare those parathas with homegrown fresh radishes. Everybody can see a big smile on your face when you are having the tastiest mooli paratha prepared with homegrown radishes.
Though mooli ka paratha is not so popular in other parts of the country as it is in Northern Indian states. During the winter season, many people love this paratha with radish stuffing for breakfast. In Northern Indian states, radish is also used in salad making. But it is not common in Other parts of the country.
During the winter season, if you visit a Dhaba for having your meal then you may notice a full plate of chopped white radish is served as salad and mostly that will be free of cost. There was a Dhaba in Sec 11, Rohini, Delhi in front of my rented house. I used to go there for my weekend meals. Those were super delicious and most dishes used to be prepared with butter & ghee. Radish salad was free along with any meal. Even when I ordered half plate dal chawal for Rs30 they served a full plate of salad.
Okay, now coming to the tastiest mooli ka paratha. This year, I prepared mooli ka paratha with homegrown radish for the first time. Those were really the tastiest radish paratha what I did not taste anywhere else earlier.
This year I grew half white & half red variety radish. Those radishes were not bitter in taste rather sweet in taste. That is why I used that radish to make paratha.
But now I planted white long radish for the second batch of radish. So I will make mooli ka paratha again. So if you want to try the tastiest mooli paratha then grow radishes in your garden and make paratha just after harvesting radishes from the garden.
