Mullangi Pachadi

Mullangi Pachadi or Radish Chutney


Cubed Radish-1 cup
Roasted peanuts-4 tablespoons
Green chillies-5
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Lemon juice-4 tablespoons
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Curry leaves-few
Garlic-3 cloves
Salt to taste
Oil-1 tablespoon


1. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the green chillies, curry leaves, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and garlic (in the end) on low flame.

2. Keep them aside and fry the cubed radish for four minutes on low flame.

3. Turn off the stove and let them cool.

4. Add peanuts, salt and lime juice and grind into a smooth paste. If necessary use a little water.

5. Serve with hot rice and ghee. It was yummy…even my children liked it.

Note: If you want, you can season the chutney with mustard seeds and red dry chillies.

Hi Asha! Peanuts gave really nice taste to this chutney. I have tasted this chutney in one of my friend's house (she is also from Andhra) and I took the recipe from her and made it.

Thank you Menu Today! This chutney tasted very nice. You must give it a try. I am sure that you too will like it.
