Option 1) Preparing like regular Aloo Paratha - Prepare the dough, roll into small circles, stuff the radish mixture, close the ball, roll it again to the size of paratha.
Option 2) Mix grated radish and other spices, leave it for 20 minutes, Mix with wheat flour and water, form a smooth pliable dough, leave it for sometime(optional), prepare like normal paratha
I prefer the second option as it is quite simple, easy, no mess, with no extra time and ensures that radish is well spread across paratha. When we go with the first option, we need to be extra careful as the radish stuff leaves juice and make the paratha a messy and watery one. So, we need to squeeze the radish mixture before stuffing into the paratha. Of course, we can use the squeezed juice to make paratha. But we need to wait till that time before making the dough. So, my recommendation is to go for the second option which is quite easy.
