In winter we get nice and juicy radishes with fresh greens. You can make use of these greens also in the curry as they are full of nutrition. I even add the finely chopped leaves to the stuffing of parathas. Many people do not relish this vegetable because its strong and  pungent taste and smell. But the curry tastes so delicious with all the added spices. This can be served with rotis and bhakris.

Radish ............ 1 large (about 2 cups diced)
Radish greens ... 2-3 cups 
Cumin seeds .... 1 tsp
Green chillies ... 2-3
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder ...... 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1/2 tsp
Salt .................. to taste
Mustard oil ..... 3 tbsps (use any oil you prefer)
(For tempering)
Garlic ............ 1 tbsp (crushed)
Ghee .............  1tbsp


Heat the mustard oil to a smoking point. Reduce the flame and add the cumin seeds.

When they crackle tip in the diced radish.

Add the spice powders.

 Saute for a minuteon medium flame.

Now add the finely chopped radish greens, green chillies and salt. 

Mix it and cover the lid. 

Simmer to cook. No water is required in this curry. After few minutes open the lid and stir it. Check if it is done. If not cover and continue to simmer.

Finally heat the ghee in a small  pan.

Add the crushed garlic. Fry until golden brown in colour. 

Add it to the dish and stir.

  1. Its been ages since I've had mooli sabji. I love to have it with khichdi and kadhi. I usually don't add garlic but will try your version next time.

    1. Thanks Mayuri.. Garlic gives that extra taste to it.

  2. I love mooli sabji, my mum used to make it and add the greens too, We always had it with Rotis and rice and Kadhi

  3. Mooli is so versatile, although my fav way to eat is in spicy thick parathas for breakfast, I do love a good mooli sabzi too!

    1. Yes dear .. I love the parathas too. Thanks
