Saucy, Braised Red Radish And Greens

Beautiful salads made with enticing lush love apple, crisp red radish topped with peaches, olives and greens, I mostly make the salads in a jar and keep them chilled for refreshing and light salad onto a plate. I love radish and decided to play around with this peppery heat salad essential and make this Asian inspired saucy radish recipe. I was pretty astounded the way the entire meal turned out a complete hit for a veggie lover like me, I am so obsessed with the radish curry that I make a generous portion of this satisfying bowl for myself, a great way to add radish in our regime. The recipe is perfect if you’re craving for something quick with pretty common ingredients.

Personally, I love the combination of contrasting crimson rims and white insides, maybe that’s why I am hooked on buying dragon fruits, red sweet potatoes, lovely red apples and nice looking red radish, even though they all taste amazingly different and smashing but, they have one thing in rife with bonus, all are loaded with hearty and healthy bombs. It’s a good idea to count reds in your diet on a regular basis as their natural ability in lowering diabetes to curtail cancer and to bolster healthy heart is so good. I prefer to add them as in salads and amazing blends of sauces so that even he enjoys each bite of its taste in every form without being faddy! The first taste of radish curry was one of the assorted experience of little tangy with a punch of its natural warm spice, I have paired the chopped radish with its fresh leafy head becoming a full meal with chapatis or Indian flat bread. I love the simplicity and versatility of radish, as it often features regularly on our brunch table in different variations, sometimes the crunchy flesh complimenting with white flaky salt, sometimes with whipped ricotta and now in a form of flavorful Indian curry!
