Radish Chutney

Chutneys are a a very important side dish in South Indian cuisine. Any kind of chutney cleanses the palate and activates the taste buds. Radish is an under-appreciated vegetable. They are very good for health and are loaded with nutrients. This radish chutney hides radish from you and you will not know there’s radish in it.
This is a very flavourful and spicy chutney and makes a very good side dish for steamed rice or chapathis.I have learnt a version of this chutney from my MIL. She sautes the ground chutney again after grinding before adding the tadka.

Here I do not saute the radish chutney again after grinding, an easier version I suppose. But nonetheless both of them are very tasty and will hit the right taste buds!
So the next time you are thinking of making chutneys, think about this radish chutney. It is also quite easy to make and keeps well for a day or two refrigerated.
Try other vegetable based chutneys from FOI, seemebadanekayi chutney, gorikayi chutney etc…
