MULYAACHI KOSHIMBIR (RADISH SALAD)

Mulaa or Radish as it is called in English, is an extremely nutritious vegetable. Radishes are grown and eaten throughout the world, but mostly as a raw salad. Some Indian cuisines use these healthy roots for cooking daals or vegetables or parathas too.

Radishes have numerous varieties, varying in size, colour and flavor. Here I have used the white radishes commonly found in the winters in India. They have a slightly sharp pungent flavour. The leaves of this root too are used in salads and cooking.

Mulyaachi Koshimbir (as called in Marathi), means a Radish salad. The pungency of the radish and the leaves here is eliminated by simply crushing and squeezing the leaves and radish. The other ingredients added give this koshimbir a lovely taste. This is a commonly made salad in our house in the winters as we get fresh and lovely radishes exactly during this season.

As it’s rightly said, it’s good to eat seasonal vegetables and fruits! Here’s the recipe for this healthy, delicious and simple….. Winter Special…… Mulyaachi Koshimbir.

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 cup Grated Radish
  • 1 1/2 cup Chopped Radish Leaves
  • 2 Small Onions
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Grated Coconut
  • 1 Green Chilly…. Optional
  • 1 1/2 tsp Sugar….. Or as desired
  • Salt to taste

METHOD :

  1. To make Mulyaachi Koshimbir, start by grating the radishes and finely chopping the onions, green chillies and the radish leaves.
  2. Crush the chopped leaves slightly and squeeze a bit. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Tightly squeeze the grated radishes to remove as much water as you can. Add this to the mixing bowl.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients just before serving and mix well. Adjust seasoning and sweetness as per taste.
  5. Serve with some Varan and steamed rice and some Kaale Vaataanyachi Usal or Shevgyachya Shengaanchi Bhaaji or Laal Chawlichi Paatal Bhaaji or just any other vegetables as per choice!

Note :

The preparation for this salad can be made beforehand, but the mixing should be done only at the time of serving. This salad tastes best when served with some coconut based Malvani or Maharashtrian gravy vegetables! Can surely be relished with vegetables from any other cuisine!

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! πŸ˜ƒ

    1. I would have surely done so if I would have known it myself. I am just a housewife sharing all my home cooked recipes on my blog, which I have mentioned too. 😊 But, I wouldn’t mind if anyone would find out the calories per helping and share it in the comments here. There are certain apps for the same, which are used by certain established food bloggers. Had read about it. Thank you.
