  • Frying Pan


  • 1.5 tablespoon Sesame oil cold pressed
  • ½ c Peeled and sliced shallots
  • 1 sprig Curry leaves
  • 4 cloves Garlic chopped roughly
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon Red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander powder
  • ½ c Finely chopped tomato
  • 1.5 teaspoon Tamarind paste
  • 1 teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • 200 g Radish peeled and sliced 1.25 c approximately after slicing
  • 1 c Water



  • Our first step is tempering the thokku. To do this, heat a pan with sesame oil. Pop the mustard seeds and add the fennel seeds along with the curry leaves.

Making the gravy

  • Now add the chopped shallots and garlic. Fry till shallots turn pink and translucent.
  • At this stage, add the spice powders. Mix well. Cook on low flame for 30 secs.
  • Tip in the chopped tomatoes next and cook till the tomatoes become mushy.
  • Now add tamarind paste and salt. Mix well.
  • This is the gravy for our Radish masala.

Cooking the radish

  • Now that our gravy is ready, our next step is cooking the radish along with the gravy to infuse flavors.
  • Add the sliced radish to the pan and mix well. Make sure the masala coats the radish well.
  • Once this is done, add 1 c water and salt.
  • Simmer this for 10 mins or until 90% of the water is absorbed and the radishes are fork-tender.
  • Our Mullangi Thokku is now ready to be served.
