Mulo Bata (Radish Chutney - Bengali Style)

          A far cry from all the restaurant style food, this humble veggie can be made into a lip smacking yummy side dish. It is almost a lost and a forgotten recipe that the new generation is not much aware of. It is an extremely easy, simple and a quick recipe that consists of all the flavours infused in it. 

          This homemade delicacy has minimum of spices and is sautéed in mustard oil for that authentic touch. It tastes simply awesome with steamed rice. But you may also try it with chapatti or as a spread on parathas.

  • 3-4 radish, roughly chopped
  • 2 green chilies
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • handful of coriander roots (opt)
  • 2 tbsp. + 1 tsp. mustard oil
  • 1 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder

          Blend the radish, green chilies, garlic and coriander roots into a fine paste. Heat 2 tbsp. oil in a pan and temper with the nigella seeds. Sauté for a few seconds. 

          Add the ground paste, salt and turmeric powder. Sauté on a low flame till all the moisture is dried up. 

          Switch off the flame and add the remaining mustard oil. Give it a stir and serve with plain steamed rice or as a side dish with chapatti.
