Radish Chutney

Radish is a vegetable with thin white skin and white flesh, this vegetable can be eaten raw ( appetizer and salads) or cooked (ingredient to soup dishes). To retain the freshness and crunchiness of this vegetable it is advised to soak it in a cold water. Radish is rich in vitamin C, Beneficial for the teeth, gums, nerves, hair and nails. Having radish  in our dish helps to stimulate appetite,relieve nervous exhaustion,respiratory problems ,digestive problems, relieves constipation, runny nose, helps to reduce overweight or obesity and dissolves gall stones,helpful in cases of tuberculosis...Diabetic peoples can have radishes just like cucumber n broccoli...Radishes, like other member of the cruciferous family (cabbage, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts), contain cancer-protective properties. Throughout history radishes have been effective when used as a medicinal food for liver disorders. They contain a variety of sulfur-based chemicals that increase the flow of bile.
