Mullangi Thuvaiyal / Radish Chutney !



Radish is a very healthy vegetable that aids in digestion, helps sore throat and removes toxins but its always pushed around on the table by kids. Indian white radish goes well only with limited dishes like, with parathas, radish sambar etc and I am not a big fan of radish stir fry. 
I love radish in Tamil Nadu style sambar... those big fat radishes cut into roundels and cooked in pressure cooker gives a nice flavor to the sambar. My mom makes it often and she adds loads of radish in it. I can sit and eat those soft radish as such :). I have not seen many people who like radish especially the kids. So one good way to make them eat radish is through this awesome chutney. Yon wont know it is made of radish  until you tell them :)
I learnt this from my mom and tweaked it to satisfy VJ's taste buds too.. It goes well with plain white rice, idli and dosas.

STEPS



  • Peel the radish and chop into small pieces so that they get cooked fast.
  • Chop onions , ginger and garlic.
  • Heat a pan and add oil to it. Once oil is hot add urad dal and channa dal and fry for a minute. 
  • Once they turn golden brown add dry red chillis, followed by ginger and garlic.
  • Then add the onions and saute them all together.




  •  Once onions turn soft add the radish and saute for few minutes and add salt and turmeric. 
  • Sprinkle some water and close the pan so that the radish gets cooked fast.  


  • Once the radish is cooked add the coconut and saute for a minute and turn off stove and allow the mixture to cool.
  • Then grind them along with  tamarind/tamarind paste and a tsp of jaggery. 
  • Do not make it to a paste. Grind it coarsely so that the dals give a nice crunchiness when eating with rice. 


In a small kadai, add oil and once it is hot add mustard and urad dal. Then add jeera, dry chilli and hing followed by curry leaves. (i didnt have curry leaves).



Pour this tadka over the chutney and give a mix.
