Spiced black lentil salad with tuna, radish and purple potatoes recipe

If you have cooked lentils and some good tinned tuna on hand, this works with just about anything else you might have: shaved raw fennel or broccoli, roasted carrots or sweet potatoes from the night before. Splurge on nice jarred or tinned tuna and make sure it’s packed in olive oil, not spring water. The stuff in oil tends to be richer and more luxurious.

Top 12 Watermelon Radish Recipes

Everything you wanted to know about selecting, storing and cooking with watermelon radishes. We provide all details for using in salads, roasting, sauteing and pickling watermelon radishes plus a round-up of our top recipes from across the globe!

A few years ago we received a bag of watermelon radishes in our CSA market share. We were ordering from a farm that specialized in heirloom and hard to find varieties of vegetables. They just looked like a turnip from the outside. In fact, I actually thought they were turnips! Imagine my surprise when I cut into it and saw the hot pink center.

A little Googling later I found a basic recipe for using in salad. And my love for watermelon radishes began. Now I find watermelon radishes at my local grocery store and every farmer’s market. They have become a staple in our house.

Common Questions About Watermelon Radishes

Not familiar with watermelon radishes? Let’s go over some quick Q&A. Then recipes (which is really why you’re here, right?).

What is a watermelon radish?

The watermelon radish is a member of the mustard family, which includes arugula, broccoli, and turnips. Watermelon radish originated in China where it was known as Shinrimei. They are white with a little green on the outside and bright pink on the inside. Hence the name, watermelon radish.

Sorry to disappoint, but the watermelon radish is not related to the watermelon fruit. Roasted Watermelon Radishes are the perfect vegan winter recipe. Simple prep, bright flavors and a color scheme that is a feast for the eyes. We love this recipe! Peelwithzeal.com

What does it taste like?

These radishes have an edible round white root with wavy leaves. Like a basic radish, its flesh is tender-crisp. But its flavor is mild and only slightly peppery.

The greens are also peppery but can be bitter. Also taste test them before using in recipes.

When are watermelon radishes in season?

Because they store well you can find them almost all year-round. However, the primary harvesting comes in two seasons, spring and late fall.

How do your select ripe watermelon radishes?

These radishes should feel firm and heavy for their size. The skin should be crack and wrinkle-free. Avoid watermelon radishes that feel spongy when squeezed.

Watermelon radish can vary greatly in size, from smaller than a golf ball too much larger than a tennis ball.

How do your store watermelon radishes before using?

Radishes should be stored in the fridge or a cool place. I find they can last 2-3 weeks without issue. Also, you don’t have to use the entire radish at once. A half-used radish will store for several days in a reusable container in the refrigerator.

Do you have to peel watermelon radishes?

You do not have to peel watermelon radishes. But, like all root vegetables, you should clean them thoroughly to remove any dirt before using them.

How to cook with watermelon radishes?

The root of the vegetable can be pickled, eaten raw in salads, sauteed or roasted. The greens can be tossed in salads or pureed into pestos.

Because of their bright color, they also make a beautiful topping or garnish for sandwiches, sushi, soups, and tacos.

Are watermelon radishes easy to grow?

Watermelon radishes are similar in ease to other radishes, which means pretty easy overall. However, because they are larger than the average breakfast radish they will take longer to mature (around 65 days). Note that warmer climates may cause the radishes to have a more bitter flavor.

Its official name in seed catalogs was originally Red Meat radish, some heirloom seed catalog’s still call it this. Once it caught on as a popular farmer’s market item for marketing reasons vendors began to sell it under the name Beauty Heart or Watermelon radish.

Are watermelon radishes good for you?

Absolutely! Both the flesh and the greens are high in fiber and vitamin C.

Genes | Free Full-Text | Quantitative Trait Loci (QTLs) Associated with Microspore Culture in Raphanus sativus L. (Radish)

< div class= "art-abstract in-tab hypothesis_container" > The radish is an extremely self-incompatible plant, and consequently it is difficult to produce homozygous lines. Bud pollination in cross-fertilization plants must be done by opening immature pollen and connecting pollen to mature flowers. It accordingly takes a lot of time and effort to establish lines with fixed alleles. In the present research study, a haploid breeding technique has been applied to get homozygous plants in a brief amount of time by doubling chromosomes through the induction of a plant body in the haploid cells, in order to shorten the time to breed inbred lines. We constructed hereditary maps with an F1 population derived by crossing parents that reveal a remarkable and inferior ability to regrow microspores, respectively. Genetic maps were built from the maternal and adult maps, individually, using the two-way pseudo-testcross design. The phenotype of the regeneration rate was taken a look at by microspore cultures and a quantitative quality loci (QTL) analysis was carried out based upon the regeneration rate. From the results of the culture of microspores in the F1 population, majority of the group did not regrow, and just a few showed a high regrowth rate. A total of five substantial QTLs were found in the F1 population, and 5 candidate genes were discovered based upon the results. These prospect genes are divided into 2 classes, and appear to be related to either PRC2 subunits or auxin synthesis.

Mooli Paratha | Radish Paratha | Cooking From Heart

Fresh, healthy and tasty Mooli Paratha, stuffed radish paratha with detailed step-wise pictures. Make the best use of radish greens by making this mooli paratha.

Recently I posted Matar Paratha recipe with season’s fresh green peas. Today’s recipe is Mooli Paratha, made with fresh radish and radish greens. I have hardly ever made this paratha as it is slightly difficult to manage the heavy water content in fresh radish. I usually resort to making Radish Sambar or end up making parathas using a similar recipe as Spring Onion Paratha. This time though, I wanted to make a stuffed mooli paratha and conquered it to share the recipe here.

The first tip to making best Mooli Paratha is to using fresh seasonal radishes with greens. It is best to squeeze off as much liquid as possible from grated radish and don’t worry, it doesn’t go wasted. I use it for kneading the dough. I usually cook the mixture briefly before stuffing it into rolled out dough. This way, the paratha isn’t very hard to roll-out and it tastes so good too!

I served this mooli ka paratha with fresh mango pickle and pomegranate raita.  I usually made boondi raita but with this dish, I felt like adding fresh pomegranate pearls to whisked curd and added some roasted cumin powder and black salt. It was so refreshing! I usually prepare boondi raita similarly too. Check out other paratha and Indian bread recipes.

Mulo Pur (Stuffed Radish, Bengali Style) | Experiences of a Gastronomad

Share and eNjoy

It was sometime late October last year.
The Pujas were over, Diwali was round the corner. The perfume of shiuli wafted from the garden. Gorgeous golden sunshine flooded the house. And wisps of citrus floated lazily on a pastel blue sky.

As I logged in to my blog for the day, I was greeted by a message that read – Just discovered your blog as I was searching for ancient Bengali recipes. I am very impressed with what I have read so far and must congratulate you for your efforts. Some of your recipes makes me nostalgic and it took me back to my birthplace Silchar. Keep up your good work.
I was overwhelmed. Touched by the message.

And that was my first interaction with Ganadev Kaku. On a mellow autumn morning.
And once the conversations started, they just refused to end.
Started with food.
Recipes.
And very soon ventured into growing up years.
Karimganj.
And common Sylheti roots.

And during one such conversation, Ganadev Kaku casually mentioned about the mulo pur he had prepared the day before.
That instantaneously got me hooked.
Mulo Pur ? I asked. I’ve had Chalkumro Pur, Sheem Pur, even . But never Mulo Pur.
Need the recipe please, I requested earnestly.
Ofcourse, Kaku assured.
And the recipe found its way to my inbox within an hour.

And it wasn’t long before weekend lunch featured Kaku’s Mulo Pur.
The only deviation from the original, I took the liberty of adding some freshly grated coconut to the stuffing.
How did it taste ? Well, the smiles around the table and a thumbs-up from S, who is not really a fan of radish, said it all.

Mulo Pur. Roundels of winter radish. A tear-jerking spicy stuffing of poppy-seed and mustard paste. Coriander stems for freshness. Grated coconut to pacify the heat. Dipped in a batter and fried to a sinful golden.
Divine !!!

Mulo Pur. Roundels of winter radish. A tear-jerking spicy stuffing of poppy-seed and mustard paste. Coriander stems for freshness. Grated coconut to pacify the heat. Dipped in a batter and fried to a gorgeous golden.
Divine !!!
In a bowl, mix the besan and rice flour. Sprinkle in the salt, kalonji and turmeric powder. Pour just enough water to form a thick batter. Mix well, ensuring there are no lumps. Keep aside.
For the stuffing
Soak the poppy seeds and mustard seeds in warm water, 15 odd minutes or so. Drain and keep aside.
Grind the poppy seeds, mustard seeds, coriander stems and green chilies with just a splash of water to form a smooth paste.
Heat the mustard oil in a pan, add the poppy seed – mustard seed paste, sprinkle in the salt, throw in the green chilies, cook over a low flame till the ‘pur’ (stuffing) is cooked and no longer sticks to the pan.
Add the freshly grated coconut, continue to cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Adjust seasonings, switch off the flame. Allow the ‘pur’ to cool to room temperature.
Assembling the Mulo Pur
Peel the radish, make 3-4 mm thick roundels as shown in the picture. You would need two slices to assemble one mulo pur.
Blanch the radish slices in a pot of boiling water with a pinch of salt, 5-7 minutes I would reckon, till the radish becomes tender, yet remains firm. (Take care that the radish doesn’t get overcooked and mushy)
Place ½ tsp stuffing carefully over one slice of radish, gently place a second slice over it as shown in the picture. Press lightly.
Heat the oil for frying.
Dip the stuffed radish in the batter, fry till golden brown on all the sides.
Keep aside on a kitchen absorbent towel. Serve hot.
