Mulyacha Thecha/Koshimbir (White Radish Salad)


Hello friends, its been quite some time since I posted anything new. Had been really busy on the personal front. Hopefully now I will be able to devote some time to my much neglected blog. Thanks to everyone who expressed concern while I was away.

Today, I am going to share Mulyachi Koshimbir recipe (white radish koshimbir/salad) with you. This is a typical Maharashtrian specialty, exactly the way my mom makes it. I love the way the peppery radish tastes with the cold yogurt and the tempering. Its really simple to make too. 

Soak 1/4th cup chana dal for 1 or 2 hrs and grind it roughly. Grate 1 big radish (white). Mix the radish and chana dal with 1.5 cups yogurt, add some salt and sugar to taste. In a seperate pan, heat 2 tsp oil, add 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 pinch asofoetida, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp methi/fenugreek seeds (very important), 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (optional) and 2 green chillies chopped or sliced. Pour the tempering over the radish and yogurt mixture, garnish with cilantro and serve as a side dish with roti/rice.

I am also sending this for Seduce Your Tastebud's -Flavors Of Maharashtra' event originally started by Naina.

I liked tis authentic maharashtrian version of muli koshimbir...we make it just like a raita with curds , but this addition of ground chana daal sounds really interesting . Would love to try.
