I learnt this recipe from my mom. Some people might not like the pungent smell and taste of radish. This is a better way to make them enjoy the goodness of radish.
|Baby Radish (slice into thin discs)||10|
|Onion (roughly chopped)||1|
|Tomato (roughly chopped)||2|
|Grated coconut||¼ cup|
|Coriander powder||1 tsp|
|Turmeric powder||½ tsp|
|Curry leaves||1 sprig|
|Coriander leave||for garnishing|
1). Heat Oil in a pan and splutter Cumin and add onions. Once onions turn golden brown, add tomatoes and red chillies. Saute till they turn mushy and raw smell leaves. Make a fine paste with this masala, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, grated coconut and water.
2). Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and when it splutters add sliced radish and saute for 2minutes. Then add the grounded paste along with 1/2 cup water. Check for salt, spice level and adjust accordingly. Let it boil.
3). Cook till the radish slices are fully cooked and the gravy becomes thick. Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off.
Serve this yummy gravy with steamed rice, appalam and poriyal(stir fry). Enjoy !!
# Traditionally white radishes are used, but I have used red baby radish which is equally great.
# The masala paste should be finely ground.
# Shallots suits best for this gravy. Instead of 1Big onion, you can use 1-15 shallots depending on the size.
