Curried Radish

My friend brought over some radish she got from the farmer’s market. I used some in a salad, and decided to try a desi-style vegetable with the rest. It turned out very well, actually.I had another friend visiting, who doesn’t like radish, and she liked it too.

You need: 4-5 small red radishes (leaves and all); 1/4 cup finely chopped onion, 1/4 tsp each cayenne (lal mirch), turmeric, and cumin seeds (jeera); salt to taste

How to: Cut the leaves off the radishes. Remove the stem, wash well, and cut into strips.Remove the root off the radish.

Cut the radish into thin slices.

Heat a little oil. Add the spices when hot, stir well, and add the onions. Stir again. Turn the heat down to medium.

When the onions are cooked, add the radish slices. Stir for one or two minutes, then add the leaves and the salt.

Stir for 3-5 minutes. Eat over rice or with rotis.
