muli ka paratha / stuffed raddish paratha

This muli ka paratha is my mom's recipe and is very famous in our family,all my cousins used to luv my mom's food and specially this paratha is also my father's favourite,he likes it with dahi-shakkar ( sugar in yoghurt ) and cherishes like anything,i usually dont get here nice thin raddish and so its been long i made this paratha but for my surprise yesterday i found some good ones in some chinese vegetable market and immediately grabbed it and made this paratha in our lunch today ,i miss you so much papa..luv you,this is specially for you,i hardly made anything before my marraige,but whatever i use to make my father always ate it happily without any hesitation  and use to encourage us more by saying its very tasty and perfect ! .He is the best father i could ever wish for,he is just like a friend and not etall bossy and dominating,he is very down to earth person and have given us full freedom and made us independent in all ways .He luvs spicy food to anything sweet and he loves icecream the most,so will try and make some icecream soon for him,no matter im far far away from him but still he is just a phone call away :).Sending this to jay's i love my day event.
