Mullangi poriyal recipe, radish prepared in poriyal form as an accompaniment for south Indian lunch. Tastes like cabbage poriyal. Stepwise pictures post.

Mullangi is always made into sambar at home. We get large size radish here in Singapore, I used to buy it and make sambar, mooli paratha. Nowadays I get Indian small sized radish itself (white). So I buy just few for sambar and finish it off.

I recently got this recipe from my reader friend Chithra Balasubramaniam. As soon as I went through the recipe, I knew I will try it soon. I always had a thought mullangi might smell strong if made poriyal. But it was just like cabbage poriyal as she mentioned. 

I tried this super simple way as she sent me. You can add onion and ginger too if you like to suppress the radish smell completely.
