Ingredients to make Radish curry with greens

  • About 3 cups of young radishes + their greens, chopped finely
  • salt, to taste
  • jaggery powder, to taste
  • red chilli powder, to taste
  • gram flour (besan), about 1/2 cup
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • A pinch of asafoetida

How to make Radish curry with greens

  1. Dry roast the gram flour on medium flame till it turns slightly brown and begins to emit a lovely fragrance. Ensure that it doesn't burn. When done, transfer to a plate and keep aside.
  2. Now, heat the oil in a pan. Add in the mustard, and allow to pop. Add in the asafoetida, and let it stay in for a couple of seconds.
  3. Add in the chopped radish and the greens. Cook, covered, on low-medium flame till the radish and the greens get tender.
  4. Add salt, jaggery powder and red chilli powder to taste, along with the turmeric powder. Mix well.
  5. Cook on low-medium flame for a couple more minutes, or till the radish and the greens are fully cooked. This should take 6-7 minutes.
  6. Now, add the roasted gram flour to the pan. Mix well. Cook on low-medium flame, uncovered, till all the ingredients are well integrated together. This should take 3-4 minutes.
  7. Switch off gas. Serve with rotis and daal tadka or kadhi.

My Tip:

Use radishes and greens that are very tender, in the peak of winter, for best results. This curry is supposed to be dry. If you feel it is very dry, though, you could add a splash of water before adding in the gram flour. Sugar can be used in place of jaggery powder. Do not skip the jaggery/sugar, because it is what gives the curry a beautiful, well-rounded flavour.
