Mulyachi bhaji (Radish vegetable with yellow moong dal)

Hello and wishing everyone a very Happy New Year 2020!!!

Hope you all had a relaxing winter break. We had a great time visiting fun hiking places and spending time with close friends and family. After 2 weeks of indulgent eating, we are back to routine and trying to eat simple cleansing foods. Today I am sharing with you a recipe for Moola/Mula/Mooli bhaji (Radish vegetable). Radish is a fantastic vegetable. It boosts immunity, helps to fight cough and cold, cleanses liver, helps digestion and regulates blood pressure. Here in this bhaji, I also add the radish greens and moong dal to this bhaji to make it super healthy and super tasty. 

Here is the recipe for Mulyachi bhaji (moong dal ghalun):

Ingredients: Mula or Radish with greens - 3 medium chopped into pieces (thoroughly wash and chop radish greens separately), moong dal - 1/4th cup (soaked for at least an hour), green chillies - crushed, garlic chopped - 6-7, peanut powder - 2-3 tbsp, tempering: mustard seeds-  1 tsp, cumin seeds - 1 tsp, asofoetida - 1/2 tsp, Turmeric powder - 1 tsp, red chilly powder - 1 tsp (per taste), salt to taste, jaggery or sugar 1-2 tsp 

Method: Wash, remove skin and  and chop the radish/moola/mooli into small thin pieces. 
Thoroughly wash and chop radish greens separately. Soak moong dal for at least 2 hours. Take a pan, add oil and once hot, add the tempering ingredients and then add the soaked moong dal along with 2-3 tsp water. Cover and cook for 2-3 mins. Then add the chopped radish/moola and cover and cook for 4-5 mins till radish is little soft. Then add chopped radish greens, jaggery or sugar and chopped garlic. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. After this add peanut powder and cook for 3-4 minutes. At the end add salt and crushed green chillies and cook for 2-3 minutes and turn off the flame. Serve with Roti or as a side dish for rice. I hope you will enjoy this simple, rustic, healthy and tasty bhaji.

Till my next post, take care everyone.
