A Spicy and Tangy Side Dish

Knol-khol (kohlrabi) is one of my favorite vegetables. I like its crunchiness. It is low-calorie, low-fat, cholesterol-free veggie. It has abundant amounts of fiber and vitamins. This mildly sweet vegetable blends well with the spices and other veggies.

Making this curry was simple and quick. This is a hot and spicy curry that tickles your taste buds. The crunchiness of knol-khol is truly delightful. Serve this side dish with roti, fried rice, chapati, or any flat bread. Enjoy the spiciness!
