Moolangi/Radish/Daikon Palya

I love these red radishes. I was not familiar with this variety when i was in India. Here in America, they are very common and are one of the prettiest vegetables on the shelf. I generally make chutney out of these which is also yummy but today i was in no mood for a chutney so i turned it into a palya. (palya refers to a vegetable side-dish) My husband liked it so i felt like sharing the recipe.

Red radishes 1 pack
green chillies 2 slit vertically
curry leaves 3-4
mustard seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Channa Dal 1 tea spoon
Urad Dal 1 teaspoon
Garam Masala 1 pinch

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seed, hing, curry leaves, channa dal, urad dal and cook for 30 sec. Drop the green chillies, followed by chopped radish. Adjust salt and toss in the garam masala and cook covered. finish with cilantro.
