For the weekend I wanted to try something simple and tasty, what turned into mooli/radish meal altogether. With Mooli Paratha being much common, its green leaves subji is not so common dish.
Usually my mom never throws away the mooli greens and makes this subji as accomplishment.
Though I find Radish leaves are generally most neglected. Mostly you would get it removed while buying the radish itself. However next time you get radish get those greens also. Not only they taste great, they are highly nutritious also. This radish leaves subzi with basic ingredeints makes a tasty side dish and also goes very well with parathas.
