  • 1.5 tablespoons mustard oil (sarson ka tel)
  • ½ teaspoon ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1 to 2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 generous pinch asafoetida powder (hing)
  • 2 cups finely chopped radish or grated radish (mooli) with or without leaves
  • salt as required


chopping mooli (radish)

  • Rinse and peel the radish. Either grate or chop the radish roots finely.
  • If the radish has leaves, then rinse the leaves and then chop them finely too.

making mooli sabzi

  • Heat the mustard oil till it starts smoking. Lower the flame. Add the ajwain (carom seeds) and let them crackle. 
  • Now add the green chiles and asafoetida and fry again for some seconds. 
  • Add the mooli (radish) along with the leaves and salt. Mix well.
  • Do not cover the pan. Let the mooli cook on a low to medium-low flame.
  • Keep on stirring in between. The mooli and the greens will start to release their juices.
  • Just stir the mooli sabzi. The liquids will evaporate whilst the mooli is getting cooked.
  • When the mooli gets completely cooked and the whole mooli sabzi looks dry, remove from fire.
  • Serve mooli ki sabji hot with soft phulkas or chapatis.


Few tips:
  • Add less chilies to make the muli sabzi less hot & spicy.
  • Recipe can be doubled or tripled.
