  71. i had some radish greens with me adn didnt know what to do with it...chanced upon this recipe and tried it out. I didnt know what to expect since its the first time i was trying it. It came out really bitter..is that how it is supposed 2 taste? I added some lemon juice because we couldnt eat it and the lemon juice kinda reduced it a little bit but the bitter taste was still obvious..any idea how i can get rid of the bitter taste?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Dear Nisha (An Open Book)
    Actually it does not taste bitter.I have used white radish greens for this recipe. Use greens which are fresh and tender and also try adding freshly grated coconut .Many have tried this recipe and have written to me that it was good.
