Pickled Radish ( Uravesina Mullangi)

Pickled Radish ( Uravesina Mullangi)
Summer brings back memories of lazy days with cousins, those carefree days with nothing else to except play,eat and sleep. I remember we used to play non-stop in scorching heat of Andhra. At the end of the holidays parents had a tough time getting all of us back into our regular routine.
Summers also mean Mangoes and Munjulu. Store room was lined with hay and Mangoes were allowed to ripen. Every day we would go check out the ripen Mangoes which would then disappear in a jiffy.
One more vegetable we enjoyed during summer is Radish, which is pickled. Easy breeze recipe all you need to is to slice the Radish and wallah dish is ready.

2 Radish's peeled and sliced finely
Juice of 2 Lemons
Salt according to taste
Fresh Pepper
1 Green/Red chili sliced very thinly.
Mix all the ingredients and allow to marinate for about 10 minutes. This acts as an excellent side to roti's or can be eaten with ghee,dal and rice.

Mmmmmm. I will look for radishes at the farmer's market this weekend. It's still chilly in Seattle, not quite summer. But this sounds good to eat any time.

That second photograph is particular is rather enticing. Makes we want to have a bowl of the pickle all by myself :)

Miss those days of sneaking into the store room to see if any mangoes have magically ripened in the past hour.

Sreelu said...

Hi Sri..

I am a radish lover...This is one vegetable ever ready in my fridge..

I usually add it to Dhal or while making sambar. But mostly I cherish it when i make Mulangi tamata kura(my nanaamma version). Never adventured with raw one though or your version..cause it has a pungent taste and smell when raw.

May be I'll try u'r method and see how it tastes..

Hope all is fine with family here and back home.
