Mooli ki chutney

When my parents had gone on their North India tour, they tasted really delicious daal vadas in Punjab - crispy from outside and soft from inside. The most unusual thing was those vadas were served with mooli ki chutney. We would have called it salad. but the vendor called it a chutney. So here's my version, which was created after having a phone conversation with my mom when she was in Jalandhar, Punjab.

Mooli Ki Chutney
Radish Salad
2 white radishes or 2 bunches of red radishes
salt to taste
A generous pinch of black pepper powder
A generous pinch of chaat masala
1/2 tsp chili powder
Lemon juice as needed
1-2 green chilies, minced (or adjust according to the desired heat/spice level)

1. If using white radishes, peel them. Remove both ends of the radishes and minced them very finely.
2. Add all the remaining ingredients
3. Serve immediately.

Note -
1. The above proportion is for 1 cup minced radishes. So adjust the counts/bunches of radishes accordingly.
