BM #116 Day 9 - 

Here I am showcasing another basic No Onion No Garlic meal option with a Tomato Dal, Aloo Fry and a rice dish which is very uncommon.

Personally, I am not a fan of radish. But when my cousin urged me to try this out, I thought to myself that if I don't like it then my husband who is a radish lover can help in finishing off the rice :).

But to my surprise there was no lingering taste of radish in the final product. This was loved by the whole family thanks to my cousin.

Recipe Source Mallika
Ingredients - 

Rice 1 1/2 cups
Radish, peeled and grated 2 cups
Peas 1/2 cup (I used frozen peas)
Roasted Peanut Powder 1/4 cup
Turmeric and Salt as needed
Lemon Juice 3-4 tsp or as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 2 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Peanuts 1/4 cup, Curry leaves few)
To Grind - 
Mint leaves handful
Coriander leaves handful
Green Chilies 4-5 (or as needed)
Ginger 1 inch piece

Method Of Preparation -

Cook rice separately in any method as preferred. I cooked it in the Instant Pot.

Grind the mint, coriander leaves, ginger and green chilies into a fine paste adding as little water as needed.

In a bowl, add the grated radish and mix in the coriander-mint paste. Let the radish marinate in the mixture while the rest of the process is taken care of.

Spread the cooked rice in a wide platter allowing it to cool.

Roast peanuts and coarsely crush them. Set it aside.

Prepare the seasoning by heating a pan. Add the ingredients of the seasoning and allow them to be toasted well. Pour the seasoning onto the rice which is spread out on the platter.

In the same heated pan, add a teaspoon of oil if needed and saute the marinated radish. Also thaw the frozen peas and add them in.

Ensure the radish is cooked through. Sprinkle salt and turmeric and reduce the heat.

Add in the rice and gently mix.

Remove from heat, squeeze the lemon juice and mix well.

Cover and allow the rice to absorb all the flavors.

Serve it warm as part of a meal.

  2. Simple inti bhojanam chossinattu vundhi. I mostly use daikon but love radish as well. I haven't tried a radish rice before. Let me give this a try and will let you know how it went.

  3. Srivalli Says:
  4. Radish rice is something so new, I haven't tried it too, in fact reading about it for the first. So will surely try to make it sometime...very comforting meal Harini.

  6. I remember feeling the same way when I made radish parathas longtime back. It turned out awesome and so I am sure this one would have been a winner. I haven’t heard of radish in a rice recipe, new for me too.

  7. Radish rice is new to me too - for a minute I wondered , but sounds quite interesting and must say this meal must have been real good !
    Let winter set in - will try this recipe .

  9. Radish rice looks so different and sounds interesting. Perfect meal to enjoy

  10. Srividhya Says:
  11. I always look for recipes with veggies and this one with radish sounds amazing. I get you, radish with earthy taste is a hit or miss veggie. I usually make dry curry with it and now I have this rice to try. So yum. Great share.

  12. CookwithRenu Says:
  13. Liked this idea of adding radish to the rice and also marinating it first to infuse flavors. Sounds irresistible.
