Radish Subzi

Radish a.k.a mooli is a popular vegetable in Asia that is loaded with health benefits. There are so many varieties of radish, but in India, we mostly cook with Daikon Radish. Every region in India has their own preparations of radish making it a versatile vegetable. I made this radish dish last week to enjoy with some chappatis. I had little time to prepare a dish and this recipe suited me perfectly. Hope you try this out 🙂
