We get white colored huge radishes here in Indian stores. The size of them is quite intimidating to me as I had not seen so big ones before. I never bought them because I thought I cannot finish them in one go, the ambat I make with radish does not require so much. I usually go for the small red ones and use it both for ambat and this other dish.
But few weeks ago, V brought this white colored big radish. When I cut into it, it looked very tender. I wanted to make some hot dish with it. To mask any remaining radish smell, I used garlic. It came out great. Now, this is on the menu regularly. Any kind of radish can be used for this, as long as it is tender. Do not use any leaves/stems for this dish. Keep it simple and it turns out great. I am sure even the radish haters would love it.
2 cups radish(mulangi) pieces
