Radish Curry Tastes Amazing!

Radish contains many nutrients, but some people may be hesitant to cook with it because of its pungent flavor. Here's a tip for you to make it less pungent: Make a spicy curry to lower the radish's flavor.

Radish curry is easy to make. I use many flavorful ingredients, including ginger, garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, coriander seeds, coconut, oil, dry mango powder, and dry red chilies. The end result was fantastic. It was moderately thick, and it was rich in flavor.

I served the curry with chapati, but this dish would pair well with any type of flatbread. I will show you my method for making this dish.
