1 bunch baby radish with greens
2 greenchillies
1 cup yogurt
salt to Taste

Seasoning: Oil, Mustard seeds, Urad dal and channa dal


Clean the radish thoroughly. Chop the leaves and keep them in flowing cold water. It removes any sand residue in the greens. Chop the greens and grate the radish.

Do the seasoning, Add greenchillies, greens and grated radish. Saute for 5 mts. Don't over cook it. Radish should be crunchy. Remove from heat. Allow to cool down. Mix with yogurt and adjust salt. Radish raita is ready!!!

Serve with chappathi...



I make red radish sambhar too, love the raita. These red ones have lot less spiciness than regular Daikon or white radish, great in salad! :)


I like the red ones better. Less pungent. Raita and sambar are both great with that! Nice entry..
