Red Radish Fry | Radish Poriyal | Red Radish Poriyal

Last week while we were shopping for vegetables, i saw this cute red radish along with greens,so i bought a bunch and it's been sitting in the fridge for more than 5 days, so today i prepared this simple stir fry  and it turns out so delicious. I remember that the radish we used to make in our home back in India have strong flavor and i found it very unpleasant in those days.But this radish doesn't have any kind of strong flavor, don't know whether it's a different variety or the size makes the difference.Anyhow this radish taste so good and i'm gonna make this often.

Red Radish Fry

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 15 minsServes : 1 or 2 
Recipe Category: Accompaniments | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Red Radish - 8 to10
Onion -1(small)
Green Chili -1 
Salt - to taste
Grated Coconut - 2 tsp
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Mustard & urad dal - 1/4 tsp 
Curry leaves -few

Wash the radish well, trim the top and bottom of the radish and then cut into thin circles. Cut onions into thin slices and keep it ready. Heat the pan with oil, add mustard & urad dal, let the mustard splutter.Then add the onions,green chili(slit) and curry leaves and saute till the onions becomes translucent and then add the sliced radish.Add salt and mix well. Cover the pan with lid & cook the radish till it's soft, stir in between to avoid burning at the bottom.Finally add  the grated coconut and mix it well & switch off the flame.Mild and tasty radish poriyal is ready.Serve it with any spicy kulambu along with steamed rice. We had it with manathakali kulambu.
  • Adjust the number of green chili as per your taste.
  • Instead of thin slices, you can cut the radish into small pieces too.
  • No need to add water for cooking radish. Radish itself leaves lot of water while cooking.
