Radish masala recipe | Side dish for chapathi

Radish masala | mullangi masala is a easy and delicious gravy made with radish and serves as a perfect side dish for chapathi | roti and even for dosa too. It even goes will with jeera rice too. I learnt this recipe from my friend's mom. When i went to her house to learn the triangle samosa recipe, i saw her cooking this radish masala. I noted down the masala recipe and this recipe i have given in the Aval vikatan Supplement magazine which i gave in 2014. We always make make radish sambar, radish paratha and sometimes add in salads but this side dish for roti is quite simple and yum too. I have slightly altered the recipe given by aunty. Enjoy this radish masala and let me know how it turned out.
