Radish is a high fibre root vegetable. Regular intake of radish help one remain younger and healthier. It protects us from seasonal cold and cough that is prevalent in this monsoon season. The Mullangi Thogayal is a spicy chutney that tastes great when mixed with rice and ghee. It can be a great side dish for rotis or phulkas. Radish is grated and is sautéed along with ginger, tamarind and chillies. They are then coarsely ground along with roasted lentils. The pachadi is a quick gluten free and vegan recipe.

Serve Mullangi Thogayal along with Tomato Onion Sambar, Elai Vadam and Steamed Rice for a wholesome weekday meal.
