Mooli Lachcha White Radish Salad 2
Mooli ka Lachcha 2
This is a very traditional salad served frequently in many North Indian homes during the winter months when Moolies are abundant. It is eaten only in small quantities, almost like a pickle.
1 white radish, peeled and grated*
2 inch piece of ginger peeled and coarsely grated or finely chopped or thinly shredded*
2-4 green chillies, finely chopped/sliced*
1/4 tsp. chilli powder (optional)
1-2 firm red tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Salt/pepper to taste.
1 small to medium tomato, de-seeded and finely chopped or 2 tbsp. chopped red pepper (capsicum or bell pepper)
* Quantities of these ingredients are only approximate and can vary according to availability and your choice. Any of the 3 main ingredients can be omitted.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly but gently.
If you store it in a fridge, keep it in an airtight jar or everything will smell of radishes.
