Raddish Chutney-Mullangi Chutney

Got little late from the bed? Virtually our head loaded with tons of question mark. The questions varies from rock to bottom. Some kitchen related queries can menu for the breakfast, the menu for the lunch box. Tensions related to framing the menu to that day, can be made easier by deciding it earlier, before the day. Planning makes you tackle everything with the smiling face. Likewise, this Radish Chutney may sound unfamiliar, makes you postpone every time. But planning ahead, making this recipe is as easy as walking on the cake.

Raddish Chutney / Mullangi Chutney

Mostly in South Indian homes, whatever may be the quantity, the entire radish would go straight away to sambar. I never seen my mom handles radish other than sambar. Though mullangi sambar tastes haven, regular usage can lead to boredom.

This radish chutney is easier to make, and I bet, no one can imagine the main ingredient. Since it is made out of just vegetable, guilt free gulping is possible.
