Raddish Gojju

Radish Gojju from RCI-Karnataka hosted by Asha of Foddies Hope...

I saw this recipe in Asha’s blog (Foodies Hope). I usually make sambar and chutney with Raddish. For a change I tried to make gojju by adding ginger and cumin seeds. It was excellent. Thank you Asha, for sharing this recipe. I didn’t have the raagi (red millet) flour to make raagi mudda so I had this gojju with pulagam along with ghee, tamarind pickle and papads. It was very nice. Now I will tell you that how I made raddish gojju….

Ingredients for grinding:

Grated raddish-2 cups
Fresh coconut-1/2 cup
Yogurt-1 cup
Green chillies-2
Fried gram dal-1tablespoon
Curry leaves-few
Coriander leaves-few
A small piece of ginger
Salt to taste

For seasoning: ¼ teaspoon mustard seeds, ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds and ¼ teaspoon urad dal, one splitted dry chilly and two garlic cloves(optional).
Ghee-1 tablespoon


1. Grind the grated raddish, fresh coconut, fried gram dal, curry leaves, coriander leaves, ginger and green chilly using a little water.

2. Now add the curd and salt and grind for a while and transfer to a bowl.

3. Heat the oil in a pan and add the red chilly pieces, garlic cloves, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal (Bengal gram).

4. Fry them until light brown and add to the grinded paste. I already added the curry leaves in the grinded paste so I did not add them in the seasoning.

5. Mix well and serve with raagi mudda, plain rice or pulagam.

Glad you made it. I love this with Ragi mudde. My husband doesn't like smell of Radish but I love it!:))

Thank you Asha, next time I will try to make ragi mudda and radish gojju together.

Hi Bhawna, all the best. Try ragi mudda and surprise your neighbours.

Hi Sirisha, I forgot to mention that I too made parathas with radish. I learnt it from a north Indian friend. I hope you will like gojju, try and see.

Hi Happy Cook, give it a try. It is very simple to make and tastes nice.

Hi Vijaya,
This is a very interesting way to eat radish! I must try this. I don't like the smell of radish- maybe if I cook like this way, it will be good. Thanks.

Yes, Ramya! I too do not like the smell of radish. If you cook in this way, you will definitely like it.

Thanks Prajusha! If possible, give it a try.
