Moola koshimbir ( Radish salad)

This is a very tasty and crunchy salad. I sometimes use raw radish in this salad and sometimes I saute the radish a bit. This reduces the otherwise strong flavour of the radish. Today I am posting the recipe of radish salad with sauted radish.


Ingredients :

1.......................radish very finely chopped
1 .......................onion very finely chopped
1/2 cup...............fresh grated coconut
2.....................green chillies cut into slits
1/2 ...................lemon
10 -12.............curry leaves
1 tsp.................mustard seeds
1/2 tsp..............asefotida (hing)
few sprigs.............fresh coriander
salt
sugar
coconut oil



Method :

Sprinkle salt of the chopped radish and keep aside for 1 hour .
The radish will leave lots of water.
Squeeze the radish so that all the water oozes out .
Saute this squeezed radish in coconut oil till it is light pink but still crunchy.
When it cools down add onion, grated coconut, chillies, salt and sugar.
Squeeze the juice of half lemon on it and mix everything well.
Heat coconut oil in a separate small vessel.
When hot add mustard seeds, when they splutter add hing and curry leaves .
Add this tempering to the salad and mix well.
Garnish with chopped coriander and serve.
