Mulor Ghanto (Dry Radish Mix)


This is a easy to make. It came about when I told my parents that I had picked some fresh radishes from the Farmer's market. They suggested that I try making mulo'r ghanto and even gave me the recipe. I didn't know it was so quick and easy.

Mostly the prep time is for grating the radishes. After that it comes together quickly. It is a great accompaniment with some hot rice and dal.

Ingredients: (serves 2-4)
2-3 radishes (grated)
2 green chillies
1 dry red chilli
1/2 tspoon cumin seeds
1/2 tspoon nigella seeds
1/2 tspoon turmeric powder
1/2 tspoon coriander powder
pinch of sugar
1 tbspoon oil
salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan and temper it with cumin seeds, nigella seeds, dry red chilli, green chilli.

Then add in the grated radish, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and sugar and let it cook for 3-4 minutes. Then add in 1/2 cup water if you need to and let it cook for another 6-7 minutes closed lid till the radish is cooked and the water disappears.


Serve warm with rice.


  1. that's really new and looks yummy!! I often make salad of grated radish but never tried this.

    This would go perfectly with hot roti.

  2. Very nice one,looks lovely mandira...

  3. nigella, cumin & coriander is a killer combo..

  4. My food proce does the grating- I do make radish curry this one is different and easy!

  5. I usually chop up the radish and just fry it. This sounds wonderful Mandira .. especially the grating part. Much better than picking up piece by piece. :-)

  6. Hi Mandira, I also made the same last year you can check my version here

    love this dish and the colour is very bright.

  7. This is something I WILL try! I'm looking for things to do with radish apart from sambar.

  8. haven't cooked this in years! a lot of memories attached with it. lovely.

  11. Mandira,
