Turnip (Shalgam) Stir Fry


          It is a well know fact that turnip has a lot of nutritional benefits as it is considered low in calories. The pungent smell may not be too inviting, but if prepared with a combination of various spices, it simply tastes delicious. So if you are a fan of this humble veggie, then do prepare this side dish, that I made into a South Indian style. 

          I added some sambar powder to enhance the flavour. You can substitute it with garam masala powder or kasur methi as per your preference. This simple stir fry can be had as a side dish with rice or chapattis. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.





  • 2-3 medium size turnip, cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1-2 sprig curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • pinch of fenugreek seeds
  • pinch of asafoetida
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp. coriander powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp. sambar powder
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped





          Pressure cook the turnip for one whistle and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan and temper with mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds and asafoetida. Saute for a few seconds. 

          Add the onion, curry leaves and garlic. Fry till they turn light brown. Now add the turnip, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder and chili flakes.

          Stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the coriander leaves, sambar powder and lime juice. Mix everything and saute for a minute. 

          Switch off the flame and transfer to a serving dish. Serve as a side dish with rice or chapattis.
