Some people say Mulor Ghanto or Mulor Chechki. But what is in a name? Its a tasty and delicious recipe which goes very well with plain dal rice or roti. It differs from cook to cook . How you are cooking ! As somebody is adding garam masala to it or coriander leaves and urad dal bori. I always prefer without garam masala as here you can get the pure aroma of radish to.
