  1. To prepare stuffing:
  2. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add onions to this and fry till the onions turn golden brown. Put in salt, red chili powder and turmeric powder and continue frying. Add grated daikon into it and fry on low flame till they mix well with the other ingredients.
  3. Remove from flame and keep it aside.
  4. To make Mooli paratha:
  5. Add a teaspoon of oil or butter to wheat flour, add salt and water and knead till it becomes semi- soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls about the size of a lemon. Use a rolling pin to flatten the balls into a disc like shape. You could sprinkle dry wheat flour to help you in rolling out the balls. Make a small ball of the daikon/mooli stuffing and place it on the flattened dough.
  6. Fold the dough from all sides such that it envelops the stuffing and looks like a stuffed ball.
  7. Roll out the ball into a disc shape again. Heat the fry pan. Place the disc-shaped uncooked Mooli paratha on it and cook it on low flame for around 20 seconds. Flip it over and apply oil evenly on the cooked side. Again flip it and apply oil on the other side.
  8. Cook till both the sides turn golden brown in color and the paratha has become crisp.
  9. Mix daikon or mooli with yogurt, milk and salt in a bowl. Take oil in a separate pan and heat the oil. Splutter mustard seeds in this oil. Now add the rest of the seasoning ingredients to this.
  10. Fry for a few seconds. When the green chilies start turning brown, turn off the heat.
  11. Empty the contents of the seasoning in the bowl with the yogurt mixture.
  12. Mix well. Your raita is ready to be enjoyed.
