    3) Pinch the dough together and connect it with itself while simultaneously pressing the filling in the dough. Keep pressing and crimping in the dough till it's completely sealed off. Roll it in your hand a little to make a round shape.

    5) Heat a Meyer Non-Stick Pan or Tawa at an extremely high temperature. Lay the rolled paratha flat on the pan. Cook for 30-40 seconds on each side, then apply a thin layer of desi ghee and cook on both the sides again till it's brown and crispy to your liking.

    Expert Tips
    1. Make sure to squeeze out water from the grated radish or you won't be able to stuff it in the dough.
    2. Do not over stuff the dough, otherwise it would be problematic while sealing it.
    3. Roll the dough thinner, if you like a more crispy paratha.
