recipes

Achari Mooli is a delicious food accompaniment of winters. It tastes like pickle. Radish is available in winters only because this vegetable tastes perfect when grown in very colder regions.
Being brought up in Gujarat, I used to miss the original taste of Radish and Carrot. Because these vegetables give the perfect sweet taste when grown in colder regions.
Now, I am in Rajasthan, so enjoying the real taste of Radish and Carrot.
I would recommend to taste the Radish, before preparing this dish.
Because if Radish is bitter in taste, it will spoil the dish.
Radish is full of water and fiber, boosts immunity and improves digestion. Mostly used as salad.
If you live in hot climate, Radish may not be your favorite as I mentioned the reason above.
But if you have those sweet Radish, you should try this dish for sure. So not wasting time let us start.
