Laal Mulyachi Bhaji - Red Radish stir fry

Whenever I visit the farmers' market, I just go with the flow. All fresh veggies and fruits - I buy whatever catches my fancy. and then after coming home I am in a mad rush to make the dishes one after the other before all the veggies start to get rotten. I always decide that I won't buy these many veggies after all we are just a family of 3 (or 2 & 1/2 really!) but next time, the same story repeats!

Laal Mulyachi (Partun) Bhaaji
Red Radish Stir Fry
3 bunches red radishes, thinly chopped
1 red potato, peeled & thinly chopped
salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp mild chili powder or paprika


1 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/4 tsp asafoetida

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Garnish (optional)

1 tbsp freshly grated coconut


0. Remove both ends of radishes. Halve them. Again halve and make thin pieces. Similarly chop potatoes. Keep both the vegetables in water.

1. Heat oil in a nonstick kadai or wok

2. Add all the ingredients for tempering

3. Add vegetables by draining all the water. Saute for 10-15 minutes without adding any water or keeping a lid on top.

4. Add salt, sugar, chili powder. Saute again for 5 minutes.

5. Garnish with coconut if using.

Note -

1. Traditionally, this bhaaji is made in an iron kadai using lots of oil. It does taste awesome especially when it gets crunchy in oil.

2. Make sure that there is no water left while it is cooking to get the crunchy taste.
