Paalak and Mooli ki Sabji

Back in school, a close friend of mine used to bring mooli ke patte (Radish leaves) ki sabji. I used to love it and wait for her to offer me her Tiffin box. My Mom never used Mooli leaves in cooking. After coming to Hyderabad, I learnt this sabji from a friend. It is healthy, different and goes well with any kind of bread. So go ahead and get some fresh Radish and Spinach when you go out vegetable shopping this week and enjoy this simple, healthy, quick to make dish.
