Chickpea Flour and Mooli Stir Fry (from Spusht)
½ cup radish whites, chopped small3 cups finely chopped radish greens (which are radish leaves, or use spinach)
2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
⅛ tsp asafoetida
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup chickpea flour/gram flour
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. When hot, add the mustard seeds and wait for them to pop. Add the asafoetida and radish whites, sauté for 2 minutes, then cover for 2 mins. Add radish greens and sauté for a minute more. Cover for 2 more mins, stirring once in to avoid scorching.
Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander, cumin, chickpea flour and salt. Mix well so that chickpea flour roasts well in oil to get rid of its raw flavour. Then cover the pan and cook on low heat for another 2-3 minutes. Serve as a side dish or with an Indian bread.
