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.
