Moolangi / Mooli / Radish Chutney




Radish is very health vegetable.Including radish in your daily diet is very much beneficial. Today i'll  be giving you one of the simplest yet healthiest diabetic friendly
recipe radish chutney which can be accompained with  ragi dosa or any other dosa,chappathi and also can have with hot rice and ghee.So if you are health freak then you should definitely try this.One best thing about this chutney is you'll not get the radish smell,many of us including me doesn't like radish smell,but this chutney tastes so different that you can never make out that you have added mooli/radish to prepare this chutney.So its even a very good idea to make kids eat this chutney with idli/dosa without bringing it to kids awareness.
