Last weekend my husband came home with mullo -diakon radish and said he wanted to eat some goan mullo/ mulliah bhaji. Mullo – diakon radish is very common in Goa and is eaten as an everyday vegetable. It does not need too many ingredients to make this vegetable shine. We ate it just boiled and as bhaji. It’s very tasty with just 4-5 simple ingredients. You can also cook it with caldin curry and it taste great. I also use the caldin curry recipe to make bottle gourd (opo squash or long melon).
Serving Size: 4-6
4-5 average sized diakon radish with green leaves
1/2-3/4 cup of fresh grated coconut
1 medium onion diced
3/4 cup water
1 diced tomato (optional) gives color and flavor
1 green chilli for spice (optional)
salt to taste
Wash the radish well to take off any sand or mud. Cut it into 1/2 inch pieces.
In a pot add the coconut, onion, tomato and the radish on top. Add in the water and cover and cook on medium heat for 20-30 minutes till the radish has soften.
Season with salt and enjoy it as a side with rice.
