Chatpati Mooli (Radish vegetable)

"Mooli"/ Radish, is a vegetable which is mostly consumed in its raw form with preparation of salads like "Mooli lachcha"(radish rings), "Mooli ka kus"(grated radish) and is used in preparing a very famous Indian Stuffed bread "Mooli ke paranthe". Radish has many food dishes in India, it is even used for making pickle like "Mixed vegetable pickle". A Popular vegetable is prepared In my home town which is called " Baigan mooli ki subji", which tastes best with Kaddhi and rice!!!
Here is another and simple variety of radish vegetable which is called "Chatpati mooli" Made with slices of radish and spices giving it an awesome taste. Many people add the chopped leaves of radish also to this preparation. So make this variety and enjoy with plain Paranthas or chappattis!!
