Easy Mooli Paratha – Radish Paratha

Mooli(Radish) paratha is usually made with radish stuffing inside chapati dough. Instead of Stuffed version today I am posting a simple and easy version of radish paratha. You do not need any special side dish for this paratha. It simply goes well with curd and pickle.
