Mullangi Pachadi/ Radish Chutney

I never tried making this chutney, but had it often in my grandmothers house. Last time when my Mom visited me(talking all the mother and daughter talk in the world)we were remembering my Grandma's House, days spent over there and the lunch and dinner time...............later landed on the food we used to relish, especially i used to like the chutney that they make for idli and rice too................really yummy, but not sure, what it is? til the time my Mom made it for me.................."It's made of Radish!!!! Oh my I never knew it".  Yep! my friends if you are bored with your routine chutneys, come on, why are you waiting. Try this and enjoy your breakfast and meal too.......the special flavour of Radish enhances the taste and boost the flavour of the chutney!!!!!  BUT.......Try this only..... if you are the lover of this vegetable.
