Noolkol Paratha

Noolkol/Kohlrabi is a vegetable which is often used in Indian cuisine, it can be used to prepare kootu, poriyal, kurma and many more dishes. But most of the time this veggie is neglected by kids, so I have used this wonderful veggie to make paratha. It taste similar to mooli paratha and I am sure your kids will love them. Interested to know the health benefits of Noolkol, click here.

Ingredients for Stuffing:
  • 3 Noolkol (skin peeled and grated)
  • 1/2 Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
  • A pinch Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp Amchur powder
  • 1 Green chilli (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp Corriander leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Kasuri methi
  • 1/2 tsp Oil
  • As per taste Salt

Ingredients for dough:
  • 3 cups Atta flour/wheat flour
  • Water
  • Salt


1) Add 1/2 tsp salt to grated Noolkol and mix well. Let it rest for 15 mins.

2) After 15 mins, take small ball of grated Noolkol and squeeze well. Similarly do it for entire grated Noolkol.

3) Add Atta flour to squeezed water and knead well. You can add more water if you require. The dough should be like roti dough and should not be loose or stiff as stuffing might come out easily. Also we are not adding salt since we have already added to grated Noolkol. 

4) Close the kneaded dough with a lid to rest for few mins. 

5) Heat oil in a kadai and add onion, sauté them for a min. I used my dosa tawa for an even toast.

6) Mix this sautéed onion, all spices (Red chilli powder, turmeric powder, amchur powder) and Green chilli, coriander leaves, Kasuri methi and salt to Noolkol. 

7) Mix them well and make small balls of equal size and keep aside.

8) Same way make equal size balls of roti dough.

9) Take the rolling board and roll one roti dough to half way.

10) Keep the stuffing and close it. Seal the ends completely so that the stuffing is not seen out.

11) Dust some atta flour and roll it with a rolling pin.

12) Heat a roti pan and put this paratha to cook in medium flame.

13) Flip it around when small bubbles show up.

14) Once the other side is also half cooked, drizzle oil on both the sides and cook completely.


1) If you want to prepare this paratha as plain Noolkol paratha, you can skip the onions.

2) You can also add 1/4 tsp Jeera powder and 1/4 tsp coriander powder instead of garam masala powder.
