Baingan-Mooli ki subzi (eggplant-raddish dry curry)

This is a yummy subzi I learnt while in North India. Many of us reject raddish because of its smell. I usually make only sambar out of it! But this subzi goes great with rotis and tastes great.


2 cups diced raddish
1 cup diced eggplant
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup diced tomato
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
1 tsp cumin seeds
a dash of asafoetida
2 tbsp oil
fresh chopped coriander for garnish


Heat a pan and add oil. To the oil add cumin seeds, while they splutter, add asafoetida and onions. Once the onions are sauted for a minute, add raddish, eggplant, salt, chilli powder, coriander powder and at last tomatoes. Mix it all well and cover with lid and cook on low heat for 15 minutes or till the veggies are soft and cooked.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve warm with rotis!!

This chutney is from Rak's kitchen:) I truly enjoyed the Sutta Kathirikkai chutney
