What ingredients do I need to make Radish Chutney in Yogurt – Kashmiri Muji Chetin ?

Daikon radish –

This radish has a refreshing piquant taste along with a mild sweetness. Daikon radishes are long instead of round, often reaching 6” or more in length and are available in Indian or Asian grocery stores. According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the most popular vegetable in Japan is the Daikon radish, beating out onions and cabbage.

 

Other than Daikon radish you will need: Plain yogurt, salt, Serrano peppers, red chili powder, and caraway seeds.

How do I make Radish Chutney in Yogurt – Kashmiri Muji Chetin ?

Firstly, scrub, trim and peel the radish.

Next, grate the radish on a box grater. Graters come in either rough or fine form. Use a fine grater, to get a fluffy texture. Then place the radishes in a paper towel and squeeze out the liquid. You could also put the grated daikon radish in a strainer and press it down with the back of your hand or a spoon to drain out the excess liquid. This step is key or else the chutney/raita will get watery. Radish has a high water content and its imperative to remove the excess water before adding it to the yogurt.

In a medium bowl combine, yogurt, salt, finely chopped Serrano peppers, red chili powder, caraway seeds or cumin seeds and grated radish well. Typically this dish calls for Shahi Jeera/ caraway seeds, however, if you do not have it you can use cumin seeds as well.

Cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
