South Indies: Radish Chutney/Moolangi Chutney

Friday, October 22, 2010

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 :)
