Radish Stir Fry – Mullangi Poriyal Recipe – Mooli Sabzi

Radish Stir Fry – Mullangi Poriyal Recipe – Mooli Sabzi

Radish Stir Fry / Mullangi Poriyal is a vegetable curry prepared by slow-cooking the coarsely shredded radish with spices & flavoring with coconut. It can be served as an accompaniment for both rice & chapathi.

I am not a frequent buyer of Radish (Daikon) because of its mild pungent taste. As I was so bored of preparing the routine vegetable curries for lunch, I bought veggies outside my comfort zone this week. I kind of like the flavor of sambhar prepared with Mullangi, so I prepared Sambhar with a few mullangi and the remaining was sitting in the fridge idly. So, I cooked stir fry/poriyal out of it by grating it. If you are not a big fan of radish flavor and taste but would still like to add it to your menu, I would recommend you do it this way. The radish smell and taste would be altered to a greater extent for good. 🙂

Radish Stir Fry – Mullangi Poriyal Recipe from Homemaking Delight

I used to dice radish and prepare poriyal the usual way, but it would still have the radish flavor. Once, I grated the radish and prepared mullangi poriyal this way and it was a big hit in my lunch team at office. People who loathe radish also liked it very much. 🙂 This recipe eased the cooking time of radish too. The grating time was high, though. 😐 Adding onions & coconut gives more flavor to poriyal. When you have leftovers of this subzi, you can serve it as mooli sabzi for chapathi. You can also mix the left-over in the roti dough and make mooli parathas or chapathis with additional flavor. 🙂 Besides, Radish is a good source of dietary fiber, calcium, potassium & vitamins.

Usually, when we grate or mash the veggies and prepare curry out of it, we call that ‘podimas‘. This recipe is also called ‘Radish podimas’. If you are here looking for podimas recipes, you may wanna check out our popular potato podimas and Raw banana podimas recipes. 🙂
