Radish greens are the green leaves on stalks on top of the root vegetable  aka the radish . Radish is an extremely popular vegetable in the world. Different parts of the plant, including the seeds, sprouts, and leaves, can be used both in culinary applications and traditional medical treatments. In some parts of the world, radishes are actually cultivated specifically for their leaves, as they continue to grow while the root develops.These radish greens have a peppery, earthen taste, making them an interesting addition to any salad and they can also be added to sandwiches or even boiled down and salted for a great side dish. These leaves contain much higher concentrations of certain nutrients than the vegetable itself, so if you are one of the countless people who simply throw away radish greens, change your ways and add this nutritious new food to your diet.

Radish Green Kootu, Channadal Greens Kootu

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.
