This is my first time that I am making a side dish with Radish. My kids love radishes and the only way they have it in sambhar or kuzhambu. I had couple of radishes in my refrigerator and when thinking of what to make as a side dish for chapatti, I experimented with this Mullangi Subzi recipe. It was a dry subzi and was a lovely accompaniment for chapatti.
