Firstly Let me Thank , all of those wonderful people who shared the tips on how to keep a kid occupied at home during Holidays. I am surely trying to follow all the suggestions given by you. I  am not comfortable with Summer Camps and practically speaking there aren’t any good options available around our place. So for now, the mornings are spend watching some cartoons on T.V, afternoons in practising some Keyboard (Piano) lessons . Thanks to dear hubby who got this wonderful book ,where the notes are explained in such a simple way, that now our son is able to READ and practice  on his own . Of course  Hubby dear had llabelledall the keys on keyboard for quick identification .

And Sk ,Thanks  a lot for this wonderful gift (A keyboard) !

Some cycling in evenings, to the nneighbouringpark,  ensure that he is getting that necessary physical movement (and walking besides him makes sure that I too, am exercising)

Some Indoor games, and some computer lessons keep him occupied till night..Then he has some frequent visits to his grandparents  too. so until  he get bored of this schedule, I am enjoying his vacations 😉

Coming to Today’s recipe, its nothing but the regular Mooli paratha, with some added health quotient in the  form of grated carrots. Since the Red juicy carrots had bid adieu , the orange ones are not accepted in salads by my kid. Well, to share a truth, I too am not fond of those orange coloured carrots, but since some  β-carotene is necessary in regular diet, I find it easier to use these orange carrots in Pulav, Noodles, and in Parathas , than munching tasteless bits of these in salads.

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
A healthier, Radish and carrots stuffed paratha
  • Radish 2
  • Carrot 1
  • Salt
  • Turmeric powder few pinches
  • Chopped Saayi thoom (Fresh Garlic) 2 spoonful (optional )
  • Green chillies 2-3
  • Coriander leaves
  • Cumin seeds ½ tsp
  • Few crushed Dried Pomegranate Seeds(Annardana) (optional)
  • Red chilly powder/Black pepper powder as per taste(I like the flavor of black pepper powder, but many prefer Red one)
  • Radish 2
  • Carrot 1
  • Salt
  • Turmeric powder few pinches
  • Chopped Saayi thoom (Fresh Garlic) 2 spoonful (optional )
  • Green chillies 2-3
  • Coriander leaves
  • Cumin seeds ½ tsp
  • Few crushed Dried Pomegranate Seeds(Annardana) (optional)
  • Red chilly powder/Black pepper powder as per taste(I like the flavor of black pepper powder, but many prefer Red one)
  • Whole Wheat flour 2 cup
  • Water to knead flour
  • Salt as per taste
  • Red chilly powder/Black Pepper powder ¼ tsp(Adjust as per requirement)
  • Oil to roast the parathas
  • Whole Wheat flour 2 cup
  • Water to knead flour
  • Salt as per taste
  • Red chilly powder/Black Pepper powder ¼ tsp(Adjust as per requirement)
  • Oil to roast the parathas
  • Either some cloth pins to pinch you nose or some room freshener, because during the period of salting Radish, your kitchen will stink like anything.So if you are making it for the first time, be prepare for it 🙂
  1. Peel , wash and grate radish and carrot , add some salt and turmeric powder(Note in case of Mooli parathas Turmeric is to be added,but in this case, since I added carrot too, so I didn't used Turmeric powder) and keep aside for about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Later squeeze the grated radish and carrot properly so as to squeeze out all the water (You can use this water to knead the dough, in that case, add little or no salt in dough as the water already has salt)
  3. Add chopped saayi thoom (Or else you can also use 2-3 cloves of dried garlic), coriander leaves and chopped green chillies , cumin seeds, crushed pomegranate seeds and a little of salt, and mix properly
  4. Knead a soft dough,by mixing wheat flour, salt, red chilly powder/Black pepper powder and some water
  5. Roll out a small portion of the dough and place some amount of the stuffing in center
  6. Wrap it, so as to form a stuffed ball again and carefully roll it into thick chapati (It could be too cumbersome, as radish mixture tend to come out of chapati and stick to rolling pin, so dust some dry wheat flour on rolling board and rolling pin too)
  7. Place it on a hot griddle and cook it on medium flame , tossing it regularly and greasing it with little oil at intervals
  8. Serve it hot with curd or boondi raita, papad or achaar, or Dahi wada

Enjoy The Tasty and Healthy Bites…..

    I got married a year and a few months ago and I was extremely nervous to meet my Sindhi partner’s super Sindhi parents for the first time .(I mean that in a good way) I am Sindhi by birth, but non-proudly, the 90’s not-so-Sindhi-kind of Sindhi.

    I wanted to impress the in-laws and you (ofcourse in the form of your website) came as an angel sent from heaven.

    After 4 years of meeting his family and being engaged, I am writing this to you with a big smile on my face and immense unconditional love in my heart, thank you, from the core of my being, from the Sindhi in me, to the lovely human and Sindhi in you; from the core of my heart, from a someday to-be mother to a supposedly amazing mother (I do mean to emphasise on the recipes apart from everything else motherly mothers do :p), I want to take a moment to recognize the love between two human beings who are supposedly worlds, universes apart, thank you very much.

    I hope the love and light from my soul somehow reaches you, in these times of coronavirus outbreak, thanks to the virtual (almost one-sided) global connection we share, I somehow found you!

    God bless you!

    Much Love,


  2. Hi Alka

    thanks for the awesome recipe, pics and all. Was always skeptical about mooli parathas but am surely going to try them

    Keep up the good work. I miss my nanis cooking and your recipes bring back
    those old memories.

    hi alka…. u r doing a great job. thanxxx and lotttttt for posting such authentic sindhi recipes… we are actually losing the traditional recipes in modern cooking. we just make sai bhaji chawar, dal pakwan, bhee etc. the common ones. on visiting ur website, i felt delighted to read the uncommon ones which my grandmother used to make. and the photography is amazing, i actually felt like taking seyal phulka out of the monitor and stuffing it in my mouth!!!!! love u for ur efforts! cheers!

  4. The parathas look really yummy and healthy!

  5. hello alka,

    lovely recipe……its super taste.

    thank u for sending this recipe.


  6. lovely recipe..first time to ur blog..loving it

  7. Moori jo phulko is a must now that summer is making its presence felt. Thanks 🙂

    I went to Hyderabad for three days and it was hot, but since they didn’t have alot of load shedding, the airconditioning came to the rescue. Its a hundred miles from karachi so the air is dry, not humid like Karachi’s. In the evenings the winds blow and the whole place feels different from the scorching heat of the day. The evenings of the Hyderabad are stuff of legend… I didn’t even get to eat a cake of the old Bombay bakery ):

    Its not yet palla season or I would have gone to Jamshoro’s famous point by the river side to eat this delicacy.

    Take care

    glad to know that u are enjoying the vacation with the little one.. my trips ( i have to be out 4-6 times a day running them around to school & extracurricular) have started, & i don’t know how long i can physically keep up with this schedule.

  19. That last picture looks mouthwatering… awesome!

  20. Hi Alka,
    Nice way of having to spend vacations the constructive way..glad u r having a good time 🙂 …LOL for the extra tip, but it’ll help a great deal 😉 The parathas look health packed, including carrot, anardana, lasun is indeed very healthy n perks up the usual taste of boring mooli paratha. Thanks Alka.

  21. Alka, the best holidays that I can remember are the ones where I had to do nothing. It was easier because my grandparents lived in the village and there was plenty to do around tere. Daughter tells me that is the kind of holiday she loves too, having nothing to do and just sort of lazing around. Other than an 2 hours of math and reading she was free to do anything and she loved it.

  22. look at that texture yaar Alka you are making me droool.Inever mix carrot with mooli will try next time looks so yum yum

  23. That looks so yumm. Nice way to keep the kids busy in summer. Thank You

  24. Hi Alka….ur recipes make me feel homesick….i dont visit India any moreso i have to make all the the sindhi food with my own hands…i am also not so fond of carrots but the combination of carrots &radish is wonderful….it makes me feel somebody from home is making something for me…thanks a lot

  25. Thank you Alka for this wonderful recipe.

    I was always skeptical about mooli parathas only because I thought they’d be bitter. But am giving it a try this weekend (thats when I can go to the Indian grocery store)

  26. Hi Alka,
    Love your recipes… yummy … reminds me of good old days when mom used to make these 🙂
    I usual add fresh chopped methi or kasuri methi instead of coriander leaves or both sometimes in mooli or aloo paratha or Koki, and believe me it gives it a different taste and healthier too 🙂
    Do try it …
    cheers 🙂

  27. I really love ur recipes,they r simple ,healthy ,colourful,delicious,tempting………………
