Radish Fry


I have shared many veggies recipes, but I shared only one radish recipe (Mooli paratha), up to now. Usually I use radish for sambar, this is the first time I have tried radish for a side dish.

Radish roast was very simple, easy and needs very few ingredients to prepare. This was delicious and now I prepare it very often. Let us move on to the recipe…

Do check out my other veg recipes in this link: https://madraasi.com/main-course/vegetarian/. As of Friday, Iam taking this to Fiesta Friday #101 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
