Heat oil in a pan and add radish and all the powders.Mix well.Leave it in low flame for about a minute and add chopped coriander leaves


1.Divide the roti dough into equal sized balls.I got 13 balls with this measurement
2.Take one ball and flatten it using a rolling pin Spread the stuffing on the flattened ball

3. Now flatten another ball (roti) and place it over the stuffing and close it on all the sides.This well prevent the stuffing from coming out
