Mix flour, butter, and salt thoroughly in a bowl
and then add sufficient water to make dough, knead for 5 minutes,
cover and keep aside for 15 minutes. Finely chop the onion and
Wash the radish and grate using a vegetable grater. Add a
teaspoon of salt to the grated radish, mix well and keep aside for
3-5 minutes. Now squeeze out the water. To the squeezed radish, add
garam masala, chili powder, chopped onion, coriander, and carom
seeds. Mix well.
Divide this mixture into 1 inch sized balls. Keep aside.
Divide dough into slightly larger than 1 inch size balls,
flatten each ball into a circle. Place the grated radish balls at the
center of the flattened dough.
Then, gently stretch the dough to
envelope the mixture completely, such that all the edges meet at
the top of the dough ball. Using your fingers seal the dough well
so that all the stretched up edges blend into one.
Dust with some
flour and roll
out the dough into a circle.
Heat a frying pan
and when frying pan is very hot, place the rolled out
dough on it. Leave for a minute and now turn over. After a minute or so the paratha will slowly start to bubble up. Now
drizzle one teaspoon of melted butter or oil onto the top of
the paratha and turn over. The paratha immediately starts to rise.
Repeat the drizzling with melted butter or oil on this side too. Turn
over again and let it rise once more. When golden brown on both
sides, remove from frying pan and serve immediately!
Note- Best eaten right away with some lemon pickle or mixed
vegetable chutney along with thick fresh yogurt!
