Heat tawa/griddle drizzle some oil/ghee place paratha over it and cook on both the sides till you seen brown spots or untill cooked.

My Notes:
1.To get maximum health benefits i have not cooked radish. If you prefer to cook  then you can cook it just for a minute or two.
2.You can even roll one chapathi spread the filling evenly cover with one more rolled chapathi ,seal the edges.Roll slightly and cook it on tawa in medium heat.
