White Radish, Mulangi in english and kannada is so popular because of its health benefits.  people have started consuming this veggie in cooked as well as in the salad form.    I have already put up Mulangi salad, Mulangi paratha and today i would like to put up this dry curry to suit as a good combo for roti and chapati for sure.   In places like Bangalore and Tamilnadu  in most of the restaurants Mulangi is a must veggie  in sambar since it is available in plenty through out the year.    It is always advisable to use very tender and fresh Mulangi for this dish as it has to cook faster. Here is my version of the recipe.

What you need to have:

1. Chopped white radish – 2 cups

2. Chopped Radish greens- 1 cup
