Smothered Green Radish

This pretty green vegetable tastes different from white radish. Here is a simple recipe to bring out its best flavours.

Serves 4


500g Green Radish, washed, trimmed and peeled

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

3 dried red chilli peppers, cut into 3-4 pieces

1/4 teaspoon carom (ajwain) seeds

Salt to taste

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander leaves

Lime juice to taste (optional)


  1. Chop the radish into ½-inch thick roundels and then quarter.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-low heat.
  3. Add the red chilli peppers and carom seeds, and stir for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Add the radish and salt. Cover and cook, until tender, stirring occasionally. Add water if required to prevent burning; the vegetable will release water as it cooks.
  5. Add coriander leaves, and lime juice if using. Mix and remove from the heat.
  6. Serve hot.
