I dont forget to dish out some dal or tangy tamarind gravy with these radish greens, but finally i dish out as Kootu aka an another traditional South Indian dal based curry. This dish is definitely an interesting one to dish out without any hesitation if you get radish greens. Channadal works awesome for making this kootu, though both moongdal and toordal or else a combination of both these dals works prefect to dish out this kootu. Served along with hot piping rice and spicy side dish, this kootu is definitely a must to try. Am running this week’s blogging marathon with Every Lunch/Dinner as theme, hence am posting this delicious kootu for this theme.
