Radish, a root vegetable is packed with nutrients. This humble vegetable can be eaten raw or cooked. It can be pickled, used in salads, soups, chutneys and even raitha. For those on diet, radish is an excellent choice of vegetable. It keeps you full and cuts your hunger.
I had never tried a salad with radish/mooli until this recipe was given to me (courtesy: Bhavya/Nithin). I was sceptical initially but I was proved wrong. It tasted exceptionally good I had to share it. This recipe is simple and quick and has all the potential to be a whole meal in itself.
I know, radish does have a pungent odour which is a main reason for many to stay away from it. But when it can do wonders to our health and taste good, why not befriend it? It aids in digestion, boosts immunity while keeping you hydrated. What else are we asking this summer; Why not whip up a healthy salad and cool off that heat.
