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.

Wash radish well, peel the skin with a peeler and chop it into cubes.
Wash leaves, remove the thick stem and chop it finely.
Chop onion, ginger, green chilli and tomatoes finely.
Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, when it splutters, add finely chopped onions, green chilli and ginger.
When onion turns golden brown, add tomatoes and cook till it becomes mushy.
Then add chopped radish, radish leaves, chilli powder, turmeric powder,coriander powder, salt needed and saute for a few minutes.
Add 1/4 cup of water and cook covered on low flames until the radish becomes soft. Check for salt.(Keep stirring in between for even cooking. Also sprinkle water if required.)
