About

It took me a while to name this recipe. When I see Radish, all I can think of is mullangi sambar that mom makes at home. Especially when the mullangi is soaked in a pot filled with gram dal. oooo...It is so tender and juicy to even think about it now. But cooking sambar everyday is quite boring, especially when I would love to try out new recipes everyday. Its the season for radish and the Indian store close by carries some huge white raddish. They don't come in such sizes back home. I use only half the radish for a meal for two.
So after getting suggestions from my mother-in-law,I tried out this recipe.Its simple,delicious and goes well with chappati or as a substitute for potato in the masala dosa. Looks like white radish is an obesity diet food and also helps in digestion and rich in vitamin C and calcium.
