How to make Moongre Pickle, Recipe of Pickled Radish Pods, Mulyachya Shenga chi achaar, 

Hello Friends,
My today's blog post is on winter special Radish Pods. Sharing a super quick and easy recipe with a stepwise pictorial guide.

Radish pods are eaten as a salad, pickled or stir fried with potatoes in many parts of Asia. They are soft, crispy, mild pungent with a nice pleasing taste of radish (Daikon). Radish pods are rich in potassium, folic acid and a good source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and riboflavin. 

Radish is scientifically known as Raphanus Sativus and is a member of the Brassicaceae family. The rat tailed radish is native to South Asia. Radish pods are also known as Mooli Ki Phali (Hindi) Mulyachya Shenga (Marathi), Moongre, mogri (North India).
