Radish Chutney

Hey Folks, Sorry for disappearing suddenly for a long time. I was damn busy in the past weeks with my shopping and packing for my dream trip to New York. We had awesome family time after months. Still in the vacation mood by checking the pics, uploading it and sharing with family and friends.. :)

I knew i will not be in a mood to cook anything as i will be very tired after the trip, i have prepared the idly dosa batter before going for trip. With the plan of making some simple yet healthy chutneys. I have stocked veggies like, pumpkin, radish, carrot, bell peppers kind of veggies, so i can make some healthy chutney to dip with idly or dosa. Today I am sharing the radish chutney recipe , pumpkin and carrot chutneys are on the way. :)))



 About Radish, they are one of the healthiest veggies with lot of goodness in it. Most recommended for the people with the kidney stone problems. I always prefer adding this veggie at least once a week.
