Mulangi sukke recipe - The mulangi palya is a Southern Coastal Karnataka style radish subzi prepared using radish and coconut as basic ingredients. I often see some people throw green leaves of radish and carry only radish root with them. No need to say here about the nutritional value of  radish  leaves because we all know the numerous health benefits of  radish and its green leaves which are rich in vitamins and fiber. 

The green leaves can be used along with the roots for preparing mulangi palya or radish subzi. They are low in calories and have more water content. The green leaves are very good in reducing weight. It has great effect on digestive system. So, whenever you buy radish, bring it along with leaves and use them in any form in your diet frequently. 

Some people and kids do not like radish for its strong pungent odour. But the Stir fry made in this method is really odourless, tasty and I am sure you may love it and if try it once, you may try it for second time also.
