Shalgam or turnip, a member of the radish family that tastes much milder, is a winter vegetable that is strongly associated with Punjabi cuisine. In fact, no other cuisine makes such extensive use of the vegetable. Turnips cook easily, and taste fantastic when combined with tomatoes as in this semi-dry curry.

Never ever realised that turnips taste so good. Spiced perfectly and it turned out very good.
