I never had much of a liking for radish…I used to be put off by its pungent smell and taste…Not until a friend’s mom introduced me to this recipe… I was surprised at how the pungent taste of the radish simply vanishes in this salad..
Small Red Radish – 7 to 8
Shredded fresh or dry coconut – 2 Teaspoons
Lemon Juice – 1 – 2 Teaspoons
Salt – As per taste
Coriander leaves – for Garnishing
Mustard Seeds – 1 Teaspoon
Jeera – 1 Teaspoon
Curry Leaves – 3 – 4
Oil – 1 Teaspoon
Grate the radish, add coconut and lemon juice to it. Mix well. Heat oil in a saucepan and add mustard seeds. After they splutter, add jeera, curry leaves and green chillies. Fry for a minute. Add to the radish mixture. Add salt and garnish with coriander leaves.
Add salt just prior to serving to avoid getting the salad soggy.
