Mooli or white radish is extensively used in Rajasthani cooking unlike in other parts of India where it's merely considered a salad vegetable. Radish adds sharp and pungent accents in this bland moong dal. And like all traditional Rajasthani recipes, this dal too, is tempered with ghee. Some households even add tender radish leaves along with the radish to provide extra flavour to the dal. You can do that too!

A not so spicy dal. Raddish gives a nice flavour to the dal.
