This is a recipe that my Mother-in-law created during her visit here.
I never thought it was possible to make such a delicious chutney with these red radishes (I normally just added them to sambar).
Red Radish Chutney
(great with idlis and dosas)
7-8 Small red radishes - chopped (do not peel)
1/4 big onion - chopped
2-3 dried red chillies
1 tsp urad dhal
a small piece of tamarind
2 tsp shredded coconut
1-2 tsp Oil
For seasoning: mustard seeds, urad dhal and curry leaves.
1. Heat a tsp of oil, add urad dhal and red chillies, once that browns slightly add tamarind, onions and red radish - sauté for a few mins
2. Add the shredded coconut and remove from the stove and allow to cool slightly.
3. Grind this to a fine paste with water as necessary. Salt to taste.
4. Finally season with a tsp of oil, mustard seeds, urad dhal and curry leaves.
