Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat - Mooli Paratha

mooli parathas

Mooli Parathas


Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly cat, smelly cat
It's not your fault....


Does anyone remember this song from the TV sitcom "Friends"? The antics of these 20 somethings (later 30 somethings) would be something we would look forward to. Of course this was before our 2nd child and before our first one was old enough to understand what was going on. When he was around 6, we had to stop watching a lot of TV shows! My goodness, the stuff they get away with on prime time TV!

These days however it is a different set of challenges. A lot of times, we are not even awake for prime time TV. It is not unusual in our house to find the TV set blaring, hubby and yours truly sprawled on the sofa and loveseat (yes, I'm short!), pretending that we are watching, but actually in la-la-land - fast asleep, and kids staring at the TV!! The kids are probably watching all sorts of stuff we would never let them watch if we were awake!!

Must make for interesting conversation at the school bus stop:

"Hey did you watch the 9:00 show last night?"
"I can't, I'm not allowed to!"
"well, me neither, but mom and dad were asleep and I didn't want to turn off the TV in case they woke up!"


Anyways, back to Friends. I used to crack up when I heard Phoebe sing this song. I thought of this song this morning as I was grating daikon radish.

The first time I made this, I had the grated radish sitting in a bowl on the counter.

Hubby was the first one to wake up: "Sniff, sniff?? Did something go bad? I think we need to clean out the fridge and throw some old stuff away! or maybe it is the garbage can"

Next was our son: "Eww...What is that smell? I think something crawled into our house and died"

Our second one was very little at that time so - "Ga ga..goo goo". Translation: "Phew, even my diaper doesn't smell like this on my worst days!!"

I'm exaggerating of course! The radish does smell a bit funky, but it is not that bad! These days, I make sure to keep the radish covered in a container with a tight fitting lid. No more funky smells :)

The radish does emit a very sulfurous odor when it is marinating, but after it cooks, mooli or radish parathas taste heavenly and what's more, they smell heavenly too!

Do give it a try, you will be hooked forever. This packs very well for school lunches, picnics, travel. All it needs is some spicy pickles and soothing yogurt to make a complete meal.

I also make a large batch of these and freeze them. Simply layer with sheets of wax paper and wrap in a double layer of aluminum foil. When you want to eat it, just pull out however many you need and warm either in the microwave or on a hot griddle. I prefer the second method because it also crisps up the parathas nicely.

rolling out the paratha




Ingredients:

1 cup of daikon or white radish, peeled and grated
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1 tbsp coriander/cilantro leaves, finely chopped
2 cups chappati flour (I use Golden Temple atta)
salt to taste
Oil to fry

Method:

  1. Mix the grated radish, grated ginger, chopped green chillies, chopped cilantro and salt.
  2. Leave to marinate for 30 mins to 1 hour. Keep the container tightly closed :)
  3. Take handfuls of this mixture and sqeeze well to remove the juice
  4. Add this juice as required to the chappati flour. Add 1 tbsp oil and mix to make a soft dough.
  5. Knead well and let it rest for 30 mins to 1 hour.
  6. Roll out small balls of the dough.
  7. Fill with 1 tsp of the filling. Start out with a small amount and once you are comfortable with the process, you can gradually increase the amount of filling.
  8. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Dust liberally with more flour as you are rolling.
  9. Gently pat off the excess flour and roast on a hot griddle.
  10. Fry one side for 1 minute and then turn over and brush with a little oil.
  11. When the second side is done and golden brown, flip and brush with a little oil on that side too.
  12. Serve hot with pickles or cool and freeze.

preparing to freeze

for the freezer

ready for the freezer



Instructions for freezing:

  1. Let the parathas cool completely.
  2. Cut squares of wax paper a little larger than the parathas.
  3. Spread out a square of aluminum foil
  4. Alternate the parathas with squares of wax paper
  5. I usually make stacks of 10 parathas in one bundle
  6. Tightly wrap the aluminum foil
  7. Label with date and contents and put this stack in a freezer bag
  8. This lasts for several months in the freezer

Hi,
Most of the people I know throw away the radish water, I always use it to make the dough, just like you do. Its tasty and nutritious.

Seems like you are the queen of freezing everything. But don't you get tired of making so many parathas in one sitting? Thanks for the recipe, I have been planning to tackle mooli paratha for a while.

mooli paratha is one thing that I eat in any Indian eating place , if they have it on the menu. :)

Used aloo. gobi, broccoli and all kinds of greens but never mooli. Time to try now.......

Nice Mooli parata. i normally mix the raddish in the dough itself. Freeing is great i do it too...but dont you get freezer burns or do you use those gadgets to freeze them in batches???

I LOVE friends and I can watch an episode 'n' number of times and still not get bored :). I do remember the smelly cat song :).

And THANK YOU for posting your freezing parathas instructions. I think I had asked for them in an earlier post. They will come in very handy for me. Do you do rotis the same way?

BTW: I did try out your banana-nut muffins, came out so good but it was little sticky though.. Do you think of any particular reason???

Well as the song goes it's not your fault..It's radish's fault for giving out such a strong odor..hey once i tried red radish for parathas ..the only mistake i made was fry them and they turned out very very bitter...

Nice post SH, I love Friends and have the whole pack on DVD!!!!

I am not a big "friend" of Mooli but I think one can use any other vegie too.

By the way, I hope you will be taking part in my event next month Monthly Mingle it will be a shame if you don't as we'll miss your great pics and narration. Look forward to having you over!

Tanuja yes, lot of nutrition and flavor in the water! glad to hear that you use it too.

Gini yup, freezer queen indeed! I figure, if the counter is going to get messy, I might as well get a whole bunch of parathas done. It saves me a load of time each morning when I am packing lunch for the kids, or for a quick snack or unexpected guests. Give it a try - it is well worth the little bit of work upfront.

RP thanks! plans? hmm mysterious :)

santhi I love all kinds of parathas too. Give it a try - you'll like the homemade one for sure.

SA same method for all types of parathas.

anon no special gadgets, just the wax paper and alum. foil.

L2C yup, this one was for you and a few other folks that had emailed me for freezing tips !! you are very welcome!

KM Thanks! glad you enjoy my little stories. About the sticky muffins, maybe the bananas were on the large side? or perhaps it was a humid day? this might add a bit of moisture in the batter. Maybe, the next time, you could try baking it a little longer to see if it helps, or add another tbsp of flour :)

BSDN I wouldn't recommend red radishes for parathas because of the bitter skin. oh, I forgot to add instructions to peel the radish. I'll have to update my post!!

Meeta even if you are not a big fan of mooli, try this out, the flavor is really different..almost between a cauliflower and onion. Lots of ginger, green chillies and cilantro makes it very yummy! Looking forward to your MM!

Hey SAffron...nice recipe...I always bought the mooli parathas from the Indian store...one of them and ur breakfast/ diet dinner is taken care of. I will try this out. The last time u had mentioned abt freezing chapatis..I tried it out and it was real good. I had just 2 extra ones tp freeze and completely forgot that I did. I saw the frozen sheet after abt 3 weeks and once heated on the Tava they tasted just like freshly made chapati's. Thanks for the idea. :-)

I like radish if it is deep fried :-)
But the parathas look good!

Hi Saffron...just wanted to drop by to tell that I tried ur chapati's....well actually I was in no mood of making parathas as it was already 9 by the time I decided to cook...so I just grated the mooli and added it to the flour while making to dough..they came out really well and I have 2 batches of 5 stacked chapatis sitting in my freezer. My breakfast this week has been taken care off ..Thanks to u.

Nice post saffron hut! I love mooli parathas too!

On to the freezing part - I have a question. I usually pack up my chappatis in foil and keep them in the fridge for a week. But after reheating (in microwave wrapped in damp paper towels), they are brittle. Do you have any packing suggestions or recipe tweaks to avoid that? Thanks!

At Tue Apr 25, 02:08:00 PM 2006, Blogger Saffron said...

Priya I tried the storebought parathas once, my gosh, they are so oily and hard to digest. Homemade ones are way better because you can control what goes in them...and you..:)

ashwini No kidding..once you've got a stockpile of parathas and chappatis, you literally can reach into your freezer and pull out lunch/dinner..that is if the stuff doesn't fall out first..like mine does!!! fried radish? hmmm never heard of that! sounds good!

Mika, Vineela, Vee Thanks! Vee, I haven't had any problems with freezing aloo parathas. What is your experience?

bilbo welcome to my blog..and Thanks!

Pushpa, KA Hey, thanks guys!

Krithika yes, otherwise the smell tends to linger, doesn't it? glad the chips worked out for you.

Priya Great! do this a couple more times and soon you will have a nice little stockpile in the freezer and you can take a breather from cooking!

GM I find that even if I am going to use them that week, they keep better in the freezer than the fridge. The fridge seems to dry them out more than the freezer. Also for plain chappatis, try making the dough a little more moist than usual. You will have to add more flour as you roll them out, but you will have softer chappatis. Hope that helps!

Ujwala Thanks! let me know how they turn out.

q8td whoa there! calm down, take a deep breath and surf slowly :) :)

Hi, I was wondering what chappati flour is. Is it a refined or unrefined flour? Would it still work if I used whole wheat flour? I really want to try these because they look delicious. Thanks!

-Teri

 
At Mon May 01, 12:57:00 PM 2006, Blogger Saffron said...

Teri, the chappati flour is durum wheat flour aka atta flour. Whole wheat flour is perfectly fine to use. You can mix in a little all purpose flour to increase the gluten content a little bit if you find the dough hard to roll out. Hope that helps!

Hi SH..I made these yesterday, and you weren't kidding when you sang smelly cat! It was fine when I was grating it, but when I left it on the countertop, it was horrible. Satish did the same thing your husband did, he started taking the garbage out complaining about the smell. We had a good laugh. I now know to trust your words.:)

Hi Saffron,
I am new to blogging ( ie. reading blogs for now ). More than your recipes I guess I love your narration of events in your life pertaining to the recipe and blogging. It is so down to earth, with a touch of humor and everyone can relate to it. I am addicted to the internet as well and now I am slowly getting to reading food blogs. I Love to cook and try new things, but I guess I am a bit lazy. Wonder how you do it with work and kids. I have a 3 year old and a stay at home mom ( for now ). I barely cook a meal and maintain my home. I read more recipes than try them. I have 2 questions for you ...

1.How do you manage your time , cooking, working, taking care of kids?

2. I use a cast iron griddle for making chapathi. The chapathi is soft when it is warm but becomes hard as they cool down. Can you give me any suggestions as to how to make softer chapathis. I knead then for a long time. Beat them up like mad making it soft before keeping them in the refridgerator.

And one more request. Can you post some snacks or dinner items for toddlers. Will be very helpful for a lot of parents I am sure.

Thanks and Keep up the Good Work !!!

anon, sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to you earlier. I just use the back of a spoon as the brush...dip it in corn oil and then rub it on the paratha. That way, there is not much oil clinging to the back of the spoon.

hope that helps!

Hi SH,

My way of making mooli parathas is similar to yours but they never turn out as delicious looking like yours are :) I tried my hand at making them again tonight after ages...but again disappointed :( The mooli started oozing out of the parathas as I rolled them out...whereas if I used more dough and added less filling..they rolled out well but didn't taste all that good (the atta being the predominant taste than mooli). What can be the reason? Though I tried sqeezing out as much water as I can from the grated mooli. Will mixing mooli with the atta while kneading itself result in the same taste as the ones filled with mooli?

Hi SH,

This comment is probably really late as compared to the date of your post. I'm a huge fan of your blog and love the way you present the food! Just wanted to add to your reply to one of your readers about using whole wheat flour. I use whole wheat flour and never have to add any other flour. And I find its much closer to the taste of chapathis/parathas back home in India! Just be sure to be generous with oil while kneading the dough. That way it comes out really soft. King Arthur White Whole Wheat is an excellent choice.

Hi SH,

It is me again and i think I am on a roll...i started with the bread upma, moved to the tomato rice and just yesterday tried the mooli ka paratha - it was brilliant, it turned out just like you said ( although did find it difficult to ensure that the stuffing remained stuffed in :) - but then as they say practice makes parata...i mean perfect.I still need to work on my circles but hubby's verdict was that it was brilliant - so thanks once again

We have a long weekend coming up and am all excited ..why, you ask...well, i would have so much time to try things out:):):)

BTW, would you or anybody else by any chance have any recipes that has Channe ka atta as an ingredient...in my quest for atta, i ended up getting the wrong one ( well, for those of you who walked in late, i have never cooked before !!! ) - i now have 2 tins of channe ka atta at home and don't know what to do with it

Hi,

Thanks for the freezing tips. I was searching for wax paper in the UK and couldn't find. Then I came across this link http://www.uta.fi/FAST/US1/REF/foodx.html#cook which says that Greaseproof paper in the UK is the same as Wax Paper in the US.

My husband loves Rotis but I cant make them when I fall sick(which is quiet often) or have other work. This way, I can freeze and he can have when ever he wants.

I still need to try your paratha.

I tried out these parata's for a dinner party. I suggested making these to my hubby, and he made the stuffing (his own concoction without looking at the post but it ended up being similar), and i just double checked how to roll out etc from your post. They turned out so well, that one of my friends who came over, took the last parata home, ate half and saved the other half for her hubby when he came home from his business trip!!!!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Saffron!

I was feverishly browsing through recipes for mooli paratha... some looked delicious but unhealthy, some were exaggerated with exotic ingredients. I was almost giving up and at the same time unwillingly jotting down recipes, when I came across yours. I must say your recipe had a little bit of everthing...healthy, tasty and above all, homely...Thank you!! I am going to make this for lunch and hope they will turn out they way they look in those mouth-watering pics you've taken...Thanks again!

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It's not your fault

They won't take you to the vet
You're obviously not their favorite pet
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault

You may not be a bed of roses
You're not friend to those with noses
I'll miss you before we're done
Or the world will smell as one

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It's not your fault
