Muliki Besan wali subji - Mulyacha Korda or Bhugara (मूळयाचा कोरडा / मूळयाचा भूगरा )

Radish or muli primarily used in salads or parartha stuffing, but it also makes interesting main course. As you would see in many of my recipes, this also can be prepared with few day to day ingredients. This is mainly due to the region I belong to is usually very hot and scarcity of water, where we did not have regular supply of fresh vegetables in past. Though in recent times the situation has changed, in traditional foods one can easily find the impressions of past.

8. 2 tbsp red chilli powder
9. 1tbsp amchoor powder
10.1/2 tbsp sugar
11. Salt to taste
12. 4-5 tbsp oil
