Mooli ki Sabzi

Do you all love the greens?  I love all types of greens and these radish leaves are one of my favorite type of greens. Mooli is a winter radish which is called daikon and is more popular in the Southeast Asia region. Daikon comes from two Japanese words, dai means large and kon means root. Mooli ki Sabzi reminds me of my childhood in India. After moving to the US, it was a while before I got to eat this subzi as I wasn’t able to find the greens.

Daikon has quite a few health benefits including its ability to prevent certain types of cancer, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, improve digestion, detoxify the body, strengthen bones, aid respiratory health, and stimulate weight loss.

Have you ever tried the mooli with chaat masala and lemon juice??  I just love it especially when the mooli is sweet.  I am not sure if everyone like to eat the radish leaves but these greens also come with some health benefits.  Now on to the recipe and see what is the radish leaves all about??

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 bunches of  Mooli Leaves
  • 1 tsp of cumin seeds
  • 1-2 cubed potatoes
  • 1/4 mooli sliced
  • salt to taste
  • 3/4 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 inch chopped ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1-2 chopped green chilli
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Directions:

Chop the mooli leaves and wash it thoroughly as sometimes they are full of sand.  In a kadhai, heat two tablespoons of olive oil. Add cumin seeds and let it splatter. Then add chopped ginger and green chilli to the oil.  Cook for a minute or two then add the cubed potatoes.  Let it cook for a couple of minutes covered.

Now at this time add the chopped and washed mooli leaves along with the salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, and garam masala per your taste. Mix well and cover for a few mins.  Uncover and add the sliced mooli to it and mix.  Cook until the potatoes are done.

Serve it hot with dal and chaawal, or it tastes delicious with just plain white rice and pickle.
