Radish is a root vegetable that acts as a powerful detoxifier. It is very good for the liver and stomach. Radishes are usually red, white or purple in color. The white radish is also known as daikon. It is eaten by people all over the world. The tender varieties are sweet and are eaten raw in salads or used to make radish juice. The bigger ones have a pungent smell but tastes good when cooked with spices.

In India, radish is used to make mullangi sambhar, radish pickle, muli ka paratha or muli sabzi. Here I have shared a traditional south Indian poriyal recipe made with red radish. You can also make poriyal with daikon radish or other similar root vegetables. So here is the recipe.
