Mooli Paratha or Radish Paratha is a healthy paratha that can be prepared for morning breakfast. Also ,stuffed Parathas are one of the easiest way to make kids eat vegetables without their knowledge.

Mooli Paratha

Why I prefer Mooli Paratha for breakfast is…, it’s a wholesome meal and can keep full for longer hours. Most importantly , Carbs , Protein and Fat are needed to start the day because our body will be in a building mode when we break the fast and eat food. Eating healthy seasonal veggies is always a bless for the body to get the complete nutrients.Root vegetables are in season during winter , so add lots of Radish , Carrot , Beetroot and their greens to your diet this season.

Radishes are a non starch vegetable with lots and loads of health benefits. This root vegetable is very low in calorie and rich in vitamin C,beta carotene and also aids digestion. Radish has been proved to be very good for diabetics as well. Radishes has low glycemic index(GI) . So eating uncooked radishes are much more beneficial than cooked ones. So I’m here with a diabetic friendly recipe Mooli Paratha.
