Mooli Sabzi-Radish Curry Recipe-Indian Radish Recipes

If I am not in front of the computer, my family knows that I will either be in the kitchen or in my small kitchen garden, so much is my passion for cooking and gardening. I love growing vegetables with natural fertilizers at home. I harvested a bunch of radish and cooked it along with its leaves. Radish and it leaves has many health and nutritional benefits. In fact the leaves contain more Vitamin C, calcium and protein than their roots. This curry goes well with both rice and chapati.
