Radish Chutney / Mullangi Chutney ~ Easy Chutney Recipes !

Radish is one veg that available in my fridge anytime. like onion tomato veggies like radish, cabbage, Broccoli, Spinach are must for me. Every week i cook these veggies in any form, these veggies are rich in Fiber, anti oxidants and tons of nutritional benefits and the most important thing, it is less in calories and high in nutrients and so helps in weight loss. So, if you are a person who diet then you must include these veggies in your meal.
I love making chutneys with vegetables and this Radish Chutney is one my favorite. I often make this chutney for idli/dosa but never get a chance to click. This time i purposely made it for blog since I don't have idli batter in hand simply served it as a side for chapathis. At home Everyone liked the combo. This Radish Chutney is very simple and similar to our regular onion tomato chutney with nice flavor and taste. Here, i used pink radish but you can also use the white one. Now off to the recipe...

Preparation Time : 5 minutes
Cooking Time : 10-12 minutes
Serves  4

  1. Radish     7 no.s*
  2. Onion    1 medium
  3. Tomato     1/2 or 1 small tomato
  4. Dry Red Chilli    4 no.s
  5. Garlic      2 cloves
  6. Tamarind   1 inch small piece
  7. Cilantro  4-5 stems
  8. Shreded coconut 2 tsp

  • Then transfer the chutney to a bowl.
  • Heat oil in a pan, when it heated add mustard seeds allow to pop then add curry leaves and fry well and this tempering to the chutney.
  • Mix well. That's it..Radish Chutney ready. Serve as an accompaniment for Idli, Dosa, Chapathi, Curd rice. I had it with Oats Curd Bhat.

*Here the available Pink Radish are slightly bigger than the baby potatoes. I used 7 pink radish for this chutney.
Around 1/2 cup cup sliced Radish or little more.
Dry red chilli is recommended for this chutney and a piece of tamarind is must.
Adding coconut is optional, if you skip coconut then reduce one chilli.
