Vegan Radish (Mooli) Curry

AuthorPooja SundariaCategory,

Radish is a long white root vegetable that is crunchy and belongs to the radish family. It has a crisp texture and a peppery flavour that ranges from mind to strong. Radish comes in many varieties, the most common being the white radish-like the Red Globe variety. Radish (Mooli) curry is a traditional north Indian recipe. It is a simple, gluten-free, vegan dish made with fresh radish. The radish greens shed that pleasing pungent flavour as the winter passes away. So till there is a nip in the air, it is the right time to make Mooli ki sabzi.

Winter delicacies like mooli ki sabzi are the traditional recipes you will not find in any restaurant menu. The fresh, tender radish greens and white are cooked like a rustic stir-fry with a few basic spices and seasoning.

So the peak of the winter season is the right time to try this mooli ki sabzi recipe with radish greens. Rajasthani mooli palak sabzi is a simple and quick recipe that goes well with rice as well as chapatis. The use of dry mango powder gives the dish a unique tangy flavour.

About Ingredients

Radish (Mooli) – Mooli or Radish is freshly available in markets during Winters. To make this sabzi, was and cut the upper leaf part of the radish, peel and then cut it in roundels.

Spices – Use some everyday spices such as coriander powder, turmeric powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder, and salt.

Oil – I like to use mustard oil, as it adds a nice flavour. You can use any vegetable oil too instead of mustard oil. While using mustard oil, make sure to heat it properly otherwise it will give a raw taste to the sabzi.

Others – Apart from this, you will need ingredients such as carom seeds, garlic, dry red chillies, and fresh or dry kachri (Rajasthani sour melon).
