Recipe for Mooli Chapati – Radish chapati made with shredded Radish and flavored with spices and herbs. With step by step pictures.

When we were young my mom would make Radish Sambar or Poriyal (stir-fry) twice or sometimes even thrice a week when dad was not travelling and was around at home. He had symptoms of Haemorrhoids and so Radish made it to the dining table regularly as it is believed to have healing properties related to stomach and digestion. Me and my brother boycotted eating Radish as we were not very fond of it then. My mom developed this indigenous idea where she shredded the radish and made it into a stir-fry. She added little turmeric powder for colour and passed it on as cabbage stir-fry. We ate it for several months as we were scared to boycott cabbage too! My aunt visited us one day after some shopping impromptu. She stayed back for lunch. The camouflaged Radish-cabbage poriyal made it to the dining table. It was served to my aunt Sarasathama as cabbage poriyal. She could not get the cues my mom had passed at the dining table (“enna villathanam”). She immediately said, ” idhu mottakosa??? mullangi maadiri illa irukku? “( is this cabbage? I am sure this is Radish.). Thanks to my aunt, my mom’s vegetable evil drama came to an end that very day. Today after several years, I am doing the same at home as the boy hates Radish. But this is a much better version to have radish.

We had a bumper harvest of Radish from the garden and I had to come up with ways to use the radish. This recipe for Radish Chapati – Mullangi Masala Chapati turned out to be a major hit at home.

I adapted this recipe based on Methi Thepla. Here is how to do Radish Chapati – Mullangi Masala Chapati.

Wash, clean and peel the radish. Shred the radish in a vegetable shredder or a food processor. Set aside.

Add in all the ingredients into a bowl at once. Shredded Radish, Atta, Oil, salt, asafoetida, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, finely chopped green chillies, finely chopped coriander leaves, finely chopped mint leaves and cumin seeds. NO water yet. Just try to combine all the ingredients.

Try to mix well with your hands. Radish and the greens has a lot of water content. Do not add any water while kneading. Add a teaspoon at a time only if its absolutely necessary. knead well to the consistency of chapati dough. Apply little oil to the dough. Cover the bowl. Set aside to rest for 20 minutes.

Dust the dough balls in lot of flour and roll it into thin sheets / rotis.

In the mean time heat a griddle on medium flame. Flap the chapati between your hands to remove any excess flour, place it on the griddle. Wait for some small bubbles to form. When some small bubbles form, spread some oil on the chapati and flip. It should start to puff up. Press down on the edges of the radish chapati with your spatula and cook till both the sides are evenly brown.

    Dear Suguna,

    Not only do I try and love your recipes, but what makes such good reading and adds the extra flavour to your dishes is the little stories, history and anecdotes that each dish has to tell….
    I also make moolangi parathas regularly to get the fibre into the diet of my fussy kid, but saute the moolangi a little to reduce the water content and pungent flavour of raw radish prior to blending with the atta…
    Your passion for good cooking is palpable, and I hope to try many of the famed south Indian recipes.
    Hats off to your blog !! Simply love it, as I do cooking !!
