Eating Radish / Mooli on a regular basis is extremely good for your health. This root vegetable is filled with antioxidants, minerals and fibre. Packed with calcium, potassium and vitamin C, Muli may help lower your blood pressure and reduce risks of heart diseases.

Preparing the Radish / Mooli
Grated White Radish has a peculiar smell that some don’t find very appetising. So, to reduce this smell you need to prepare grated Radish by mixing it with salt and letting it rest for a while. By following this process radish will release some moisture which you then need to squeeze and remove (as shown in the video). This will help to remove most of its odour and make the Mooli Salad more appetising. It will also make this Muli recipe less soggy.
The liquid that remains after squeezing the radish is full of nutrients and can be used elsewhere like for making the dough for chapatti / paratha, or can be used in smoothies, etc.
Mix it all up
This Maharashtrian recipe is so easy that you just need to mix all the ingredients up. Freshly scrapped coconut, lemon juice and cilantro (coriander) add a punch of flavour to this White Radish recipe.
Onions and peanuts add a bit of crunch to the salad. But before adding peanuts to this Mooli recipe, remember to roast, peel and crush them to a coarse powder. Roasting will enhance peanuts flavour and keep it crunchier for longer. Also, remember to crush peanuts to a coarse and not fine powder to get that crunchy texture.
Tempering for flavour
This White Mooli Raita (also known as Mulyachi Koshimbir / मुळयाची कोशिंबीर in Marathi) is incomplete without the tempering in the end. The final tempering of mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and green chillies will enhance the flavour of this Mooli ki recipe three folds along with adding a bit more crunch.
