Makki Mooli Methi Paratha Recipe

Makki Mooli Methi Paratha is a traditional Punjabi flatbread that is very popular during winters. It is made from makki ka atta (maize flour) mixed with shredded mooli (radish) and methi (fenugreek leaves).

Makki ki roti is a very popular bread prepared in Indian households and is enjoyed with great relish with kids and adults alike. This recipe for Makki Mooli Methi paratha adds a delicious and healthy twist to the plain bread by adding fenugreek leaves and radish.

Both fenugreek leaves and radish have a sharp pungent flavor and add a uniquely delicious taste to paratha. The numerous health benefits of fenugreek along with the addition of radish also increases the nutritious value of the dish.

Makki or maize flour does not have any gluten, so it is quite difficult to bind. As such I add a little bit of whole wheat flour to the mixture. You can skip adding the whole wheat flour for a gluten free version.

This delicious paratha can be enjoyed with sarson ka saag, butter, curd, pickle or green chutney.
