Mooli Raita / Radish Salad



I was wondering the other day when I published the Mooli sabzi recipe "Why have I not put the mooli raita recipe yet?". We have this raita every other week and especially in this season when mooli is available in plenty. This raita tastes great as a side dish with spicy sabzis and helps to cool down the pungent flavor of chillies. I also love this as a side dish with alu or mooli parathas.

Ingredients

1 mooli or radish
1/2 cup curd or yogurt
3 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
chopped green chillies or red chili powder
salt for taste

Method
Wash and peel the skin off the radish. Grate the radish and apply 1/2 teaspoon salt to it. Keep it aside for 20 minutes. Squeeze the water from the radish. Mix in curd, chopped green chiles/chili powder, chopped corianader leaves. Adjust salt for taste. Serve immediately.
