White Radish Rice/ ಮೂಲ೦ಗಿ ಅನ್ನ

Have you ever thought of preparing rice from white Radish?, in fact I had never thought of it until I tasted it during my last India visit. My mom had prepared this delicious bath. She had grown lots of white Radishes in the Hithalu(backyard).. In this recipe, she used green leaves along with Radish like any other Radish dishes( I just took few clicks).  I have heard, seen lots of people waste green leaves of Radish, dont know why? it really tastes very good. We can prepare palya, sambar out of it. I never seen white radish with leaf here in Toronto, so I have to prepare this dish with red Radish. I really liked this bath. Hope you will like it too.

 Preparation time: 40 min
servings: 4

  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 1 large Radish with green leaf chopped
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • Few curry leaves
  • Salt to taste
for grinding
  • 1/2 cup grated Coconut
  • 4-5 red Chilies(to taste)
  • 1 tsp Coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • Generous pinch of Hing
  • 1/4 lemon size Tamarind or 1/2 squeezed lemon

    • Cook the rice with 4 cups of water. Make sure the rice is not sticky. Keep aside to cool.
    • Heat 2 1/2 tbsp oil in a pan, add Mustard seeds and Turmeric powder. Now add the chopped Radish, Onion and salt to taste. Cover and cook for 5 min.
    • In the mean while heat 1/2 tbsp Oil in a pan and roast the "for grinding" ingredients except coconut and Tamarind. Then grind with coconut and Tamarind using little water.
    • Add the ground mixture to the half  cooked Radish. Mix well and cook until tender and water evaporates.
    • Now mix the rice with cooked Radish and mix very well. Adjust the salt if required. If you have not used the Tamarind, now add the Squeezed Lemon. Mix well. 
    • Serve the any raitha and Papad or any sandige.
