mooli ki sabzi recipe, mooli bhurji

we make this mooli bhurji for breakfast. excellent with phulkas or parathas & a bowl of curd. a healthy and comforting breakfast. you can make the muli sabzi for lunch or dinner too.

along with mooli sabzi, another breakfast recipe that we make from radish is mooli ka paratha. in my home it is a standard practice to have stuffed parathas like aloo paratha, paneer paratha or aloo poori or sabzi with rotis for breakfast.

this mooli ki sabzi is my mother in law’s recipe. when i first had this punjabi mooli bhurji (for lunch and not breakfast), i was like wow – i have always had mooli with coconut. this was an extreme to me. the pungent earthy flavor of the mooli, the hotness of the chilies, the smokiness and pungent flavor of mustard oil & ajwain (carom seeds). so many tastes & flavors together in one dish.

so if you don’t like mooli, then you must try this radish fry recipe. you will forget your animosity with mooli. there is already a similar mooli sabzi with punjabi wadis posted on my blog. if you like mooli and have amritsari wadis at home, then you can also check this punjabi mooli wadi sabzi.

two more mooli recipes i have shared are:

you can make this mooli sabji with just the white root part or with both the root and leaves. do remember that the white root part should be tender and the leaves also should be tender. if leaves are not tender, then just make the bhurji with the radish root. you can either chop the mooli finely or grate it.

  1. I’ve not been a big fan of mooli as I feel it has a strong unpleasant smell. But this simple recipe with a unique combination of ingredients made it so appetizing and delicious. I tried this with grated mooli that was left over after after I made mooli parathas. Both the paratha and this bhurji dish turned out so good that I have to now go and get more moolis …

    • thanks deepa. even i am not so fond of mooli, but this recipe, mooli paratha and mooli vadi are my favorite recipes with mooli. i only get mooli to make these three recipes on occasions 😊
