Mooli / Radish Curry ( Ambath , Konkani style)

Many people dislike radish for its odd smell. But trust me this curry will change your opinion about radish. Radish leaves are also edible and can be used to make tasty side dishes.

1 mooli / 15 radish cut into medium sized round pieces .
3 tbsp dry roasted red chillies
1 tsp tamarind juice
3 tbsp grated coconut
1 tsp salt
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tsp oil
1 small tomato chopped coarsely
1/2 cup red lentils

Cook lentils , radish , onion and tomato together. Grind coconut, tamarind, red chillies into a paste and add this to the cooked vegetables above. Bring to boil and simmer it for 5 min. To temper this heat oil and saute onions till it caramelizes. Add this to the incomplete curry. Serve this with hot rice.
