Mulyachya Palyacha Palava (मुळ्याच्या पाल्याचा पळवा ) – Radish Greens Subji

This is a famous Maharashtrian subji using leaves of Radish. Generally it’s made by adding dry Bengal Gram Flour and Rice Flour to tempered and sautéed Radish leaves. But sometimes this subji becomes lumpy. So I tried a different method. And it turned out to be very good. Uniform texture, right amount of moisture and very tasty. This is a No Onion-Garlic recipe. Since Radish has a strong aroma, you really don’t need anything else added to the subji.
