i don’t know how many of you like mooli/radish….. but i just love mooli sabzi with chapatis. this recipe of mooli ki bhurji is again a special punjabi dish that is made at home for breakfast. excellent with phulkas or parathas & a bowl of curd. a healthy and comforting breakfast. you can make the bhurji for lunch or dinner too . another breakfast recipe made from mooli in punjabi cuisine is mooli ka paratha.
in my home it is a standard practice to have stuffed parathas, aloo poori or sabzi with rotis for breakfast. it is only me in the whole house who is a bread & cereal person and has breads or poha or the weekly idli, dosa for breakfast.
this mooli ki bhurji is mil’s recipe again. when i first had this punjabi mooli bhurji (for lunch and not breakfast), i was like wow… i have always had mooli with coconut… the typical goan way of making radish.
this was an extreme to me. the pungency of the mooli/radish, the hotness of the chilies, the mustard oil & ajwain flavors… so many tastes coming together in one dish.
so if you don’t like mooli, then you must try this mooli bhurji… you will forget your animosity with mooli/radish
i had moolis which had less roots and more greens. whichever way… the punjabi mooli ki bhurji is anways delicious.
remember to use both the root as well as the greens for the mooli bhurji. the greens should be tender. if not, then just make the bhurji with the mooli/radish root. either chop the mooli finely or grate it.
there is already a similar mooli sabzi with punjabi wadis posted on my blog. if you like mooli and have wadis at home, you check the recipe here.
