Mooli is a form of giant radish which is also known as diakon .Mooli can get quite large, and it is snow white in color, with a flavor much milder than that of other radishes.

salt -to taste
ghee -1tbsp
grated mooli -1cup
chopped ginger and chopped green chillies -1tbsp each

sift the flour and add a little salt and ghee.rub all the ingredients with the hand to mix them thoroughly.the mooli will leave water and if you need water pour little at a time and knead to a
soft dough.( not very soft.)take a small portions of dough ,roll them out into thick chapatis.

put one paratha at a time on a heavy hot tawa (griddle),cook one side and turn over. add a little ghee from the sides till it gets a nice brown colour.
