This is really an amazingly delicious side dish made with grated radish and the greens. I first tasted this at a  friend's place and really liked it very much  In this preparation we use the radish greens along with the grated radish but since here in Brazil we rarely find a one with the green part which is usually chopped off. So I have used the spinach and coriander leaves instead. I served it desi style with bajre ki roti and it was super delicious.

Radish ... 1 large (grated)
Spinach .. 1 cup (finely chopped)

6. Add the radish with greens and saute.
