MOOLI WITH SARSON KA SAAG


This is a very simple mooli sabzi with very few ingredients and spices. It hardly takes any time to cook. Mom used to make this sabzi specially in winters when we got those tender and juicy ones with greens. Here in Brazil we do get the radishes but the leafy part is always cut off. Today I have made this dish with some fresh sarson ka saag  (mustard greens) grown in my kitchen garden to replace the mooli greens. I always plant methi but I have tried growing sarson for the first time.

Ingredients:
Radish / Mooli  .... 1 large
Sarson ka saag ... 2 cups
Methi leaves ..... handful (optional)
Coriander leaves .. handful
Green chillies ..... 3-4
Cumin seeds .... 1 tbsp
Asafoetida ...... a generous pinch
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder ..... 1 tsp
Salt ...... to taste
Lemon juice.... 1-2 tbsps
Oil / ghee .... 2-3 tbsps  ( ghee gives a better taste )


Method:
1. Scrape and cut the mooli into small pieces.
2. Wash the greens and chop them finely.
3. In a pan, heat oil / ghee. Add cumin seeds and asafoetida.
4. When they crackle add the greens and saute.
5. Now tip in the mooli pieces, green chillies, salt, cumin powder and turmeric powder.
6. Saute for a minute. Sprinkle some water and simmer to cook.
7. To finish it squeeze the lemon juice, stir and it is done.
Serve it with Rotis / Theplas / Bhakri / Puris

  15. I used to only eat radish raw in salads before I started cooking more Indian food. I really like the idea of adding radish to this classic Indian veg dish!
