South Indies: Radish Chutney/Moolangi Chutney

This is my favorite way of eating Radish. A simple chutney made with raw radish. This does not involve any kind of cooking on the stove top. So, this can be put together in about 10 mins flat

If you are not too fond of radish, you may not really like it .. But, it does taste great with plain steamed rice & its good for digestion too :)

Radish Chutney

You Will Need:
  • White Radish - 3 large
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut - fresh/frozen
  • Green chillies - 4
  • 1 tbsp tamarind extract
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • A lemon sized lump of Jaggery
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • A handful of curry leaves
  • 3 red chillies - broken
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp cooking oil
How To:
  • Peel & grate radish & set aside
  • In a mixer, grind together grated radish, coconut, green chillies, tamarind extract, Jaggery, turmeric & some salt into a smooth paste adding very little water.
  • Transfer to a bowl, Temper with mustard seeds, curry leaves & red chillies.
  • Mix well & check for salt
Serve with HOT steamed rice & Rasam .. Enjoi !!!!
