Muli Paratha

I have always been a great fan of rotis and parathas. My husband loves Indian breads too, which is an incentive for a lot of paratha lunchs and dinners at our home. Last week, I made muli paratha for dinner. The parathas received mixed appreciation at our dinner table, but it did become a part of our home menu :-)
Whole wheat flour to make about 4 – 6 parathas
Muli – 1 cup grated
Onion – 1 cup finely chopped
Tomato – 1 cup finely chopped
Ginger & garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Cilantro – 2 tbsp finely chopped
Red chillies – 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Oil – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan and sauté onion until it turns golden brown. Add ginger & garlic paste, tomato and stir well.  Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and grated muli. Mix well and cook until all the water is absorbed. Add cilantro and remove from stove. Allow the cooked mixture to cool.
Knead the wheat flour to make soft dough. Divide the prepared mixture and the dough equally. Roll the dough into flat bread. Keep a portion of the prepared muli mixture on the rolled dough. Fold the dough and roll the stuffed dough into flat bread.
Cook the bread on a tawa and serve hot with raita and chutney.
