Radish is not one of my favorite vegetable because of its strong flavour and aroma..But I love it when it is added in sambar which amma does often. When I heard about this paratha, I was scared a little bit at first. After that saw this in lots of blogs and I got a little confident to give it a try.
The first step in this is to toss the grated radish with some turmeric and salt..The reason we do this is to removes all the accurd pungent flavour from the radish. Be sure to squeeze as much water as possible so that the stuffing which we make is dry and will be easy to roll later.
I love to have it with pickle or raita. You can even mix thick curd with pickle and have it with this. This is a great dish to put in lunch box. Since it is stuffed it stays soft for a long time..So I hope you love it and let me know what you think.
