Question FAVS: Radish recipes?

Hi all,

Do you have any favourite recipes for the humble little red radish? I like them as is, and in stir-fries (a few grated in mashed spuds is nice too)...Do you have any favourite radish recipes/uses?

Radishes on a plate with salt - that's all I need!


I do use the Japanese Daikon radish in cooking Japanese 'stews' and such. It cooks out really mellow and wonderful.

My family all hold their noses and roll their eyes, but I like to saute radishes in some butter with a little salt and pepper...I love them like that and also just the radish icy cold and lots of salt

I used to love carving the little red radishes to make pretty roses, but that was until one day I got a little carried away and had a nasty "kill bill" accident... I haven't regained the nerves to try it again to this day... (but don't worry... I still have all my fingers intact..heheh!!)

Steamed Radishes with Lemon Dill Butter

I have not tried this recipe yet, but it is in my "Food To Try" file.

Steamed Radishes with Lemon Dill Butter

1lb radishes, trimmed and sliced thin (about 4 cups)
2tbsp unsalted butter
2tsp fresh lemon juice or to taste
4tsp finely chopped fresh dill

Steam radishes until tender.
In a large skillet, melt butter over moderately low heat, add radishes, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper. Heat until radishes are heated though, stirring.

Hi ICAdvisor. One of the most favorite delicacies of Indian food is parathas (wheat bread stuffed or plain). One of the popular stuffed parathas is made with Radish. It is also called "Muli (Moo Lee) paratha. It's absolutely delish. If you are not afraid of putting in some work then go for it.

Make dough - Half wheat, Half all purpose (about 1.5 cups of each)
2 large radishes (or you can use a few bunches of the red ones)
Cumin powder
corrainder powder
chopped green chillies (according to taste)
1 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
freshly chopped corrainder leaves/cilantro

Make a soft pliable dough with the two flours and water. Let the dough rest covered for atleast a hour to two hours.

Grate the radishes and squeeze out any water. You can even pulse them in a food processor just remember to drain water out of them.

Place the drained radish mixture in a clean bowl. Add the spice powders, salt, green chillies and cilantro. Stir and leave it on the side.

Now make ping pong size balls of the dough. Roll it into a small sized circle. Place a couple of tbsp of the filling in the center. Now bring all the sides of the circle together so that the filling is covered. Flatten the dough with your hand and gently roll it out into a medium disc.

Roast it in a preheated pan on the stove on medium high heat. Once it's puffy and lightly brown on one side, flip it and roast it on the other. When it's done, remove it in a plate and add a dab of butter on it.

Finish making the others.

Serve with plain yogurt. We normally dip it in yogurt and eat it.

This is over indulgent Indian breakfast.

I like to slice them very thin and put on bread with butter (like a cucumber sandwich).
