Radish or Mooli aur Patte Ki Sabzi Recipe

Radish or Mooli aur Patte Ki Sabzi Recipe

First signs of winter and my heart craves for mooli ke paranthe and salads, I came across this Radish or Mooli aur Patte Ki Sabzi Recipe on Sanjeev Kapoor’s page and immediately tried it out. When I was a kid I remember my mom and SIL cooking and relishing it together. But I never had a taste for it. I can see many curled noses at this recipe. Trust me for once and try it out.

You probably didn’t know that this veggie actually gives your health a real boost. Radishes are not the most popular vegetables around, but they are one of the healthiest. They add a pungent, peppery flavour to dishes. One radish should be part of your salad every day. It gives crunch in your salads, cook mooli sabzi, or use to make sambar and chutney like they do in my part of our country.

You may ask, why radish leaves? That’s for the simple reason that the leaves are even more nutrient-dense than the radish. They pack lots of iron, which helps reduce fatigue, avert anaemia and enhance the haemoglobin level, boosts immunity big time, help strengthen the heart and keep our cholesterol levels sorted.

Benefits of Radish and its leaves

 As I am suffering from chronic depression, I have realised there is a direct connection between the gut and the mind. Keep your gut healthy and your mind will stay healthy too. Did you know that radish is the secret to a happy and satiated tummy? Radish is chock full of dietary fibre, which helps with that. A mooli every day keeps your bowel movement smooth.

Mooli helps clear the mucus from your throat and respiratory tract. So, instead of taking a decongestant that’ll make you drowsy, indulge in some mooli.

Bursting with vitamin A, C, E, B6, potassium, and other minerals, radishes can give your whole body an immunity boost. High on antioxidants, it’s quite good for your heart as well. Radishes can help keep blood pressure under control and is the reason why everybody should have enough mooli in winters, when high blood pressure issues get worse, if not taken care of. 

Phosphorous and zinc in it help to get rid of dryness, acne and rashes. The high water content in it keeps the body naturally hydrated. My mom loved mooli and had wonderful skin. So have enough mooli, and you’ll have glowing skin all winter.

    Oh, I absolutely love mooli ki sabzi, it’s one of my winter favorites. But I have never made it myself, my cook used to cook it. But now that we don’t have that privilege I may try this recipe and surprise myself. 😀

  2. Alpana Deo says:

    Raddish is one of my favorite vegetables. And cooking sabzi with its greens tastes so good. I don’t get a lot of raddish here with the leaves but whenever I find it, I just grab it. And as your image shows, it goes very well with Chapati topped with ghee.

  3. Swati Mathur says:
