Knead the wheat flour with enough water and salt. Cover and keep it aside.

Add salt to the grated radish and keep it aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, squeeze out the water from the radish. Heat oil in a wok and add the cumin seeds. Once the cumin has crackled, add the chopped onions and sauté for a few minutes. Add the grated radish to this and throw in the chilli powder, garam masala, salt and gram flour into it. Mix well and add coriander leaves. Allow this filling to cool.

Cook the paratha on a tawa till golden spots appear on both sides. Drizzle with oil. Serve hot with fresh salads and curds.
