Spicy Radish Fry

Apr 19th, 2007 | By | Category: All Recipes, Sides & Stir Fry's, Veg - Recipes

A delicious accompaniment that perks up any meal. Radish can be replaced with potatoes, plantain, taro root too. The final color and texture of this fry depends on how well you brown the onions. Add onions after the oil is hot. Stir the onions only occasionally. Make sure the radish is brushed well as we don’t peel of the skin for cooking this dish. Now lets jump to the recipe.


red radish – 6 (cut into 1/4 inch slices)

Onions – 2 medium (cut lengthwise)

Coriander leaves – 1 small bunch

Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

Fenugreek seeds – 1/4 tsp

Crushed red pepper – 1 tbsp

Fennel seeds – 1/2 tbsp

Garlic – 3 cloves

Ginger – 1/2 tsp coarsely ground

Dried Red chillie – 1

Green chilly – 1 (slit into two)


1. Boil the radish slices for about 6-8 mts. Over boiling turns them mushy.

2. Heat oil in a deep kadhai. Lower the heat and add cumin seeds, curry leaves, dried red pepper, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds, garlic cloves and coarsely ground ginger paste.

2. Fry for about a minute, then add onions and fry till golden brown.

3. Add boiled radish slices, dried red chillie, green chillie, coriander. mix well. Cover and cook for 3 mts on low flame. Remove the lid and cook for about 4 mts.

4. Serve hot with rice or as accompaniment with dal or any other curry.
