I usually prepare curries and gravies with radish chunks, but this time i wanted to make them as one pot meal,yeah as something spicy along with rice..Immediately i went through some wonderful blogs and finally i find out this delicious rasdish rice at Shilpa's Aayi's Recipes, since this rice goes for simple ingredients and a special spice powder i wanted to give a trial, i just used lemon juice instead of tamarind extract she used for else i followed the recipe as per she went for, this rice tastes absolutely delicious with papads and we loved it...As she said the tender radishes which i used in this rice does nt give a strong smell and its goes prefectly as lunch box menu with fried papads or fryums..Sending this radish rice to Nupur's BB # 8 -One Dish Meals..
