  1. the raddish kootu receipe is good. but to get it more healthier, one should peel the skin of raddish and wash first. then it should be chopped to pieces as all the vitamins will not get washed away, if i am not wrong!

  2. Hi Geetha

    I am with you. Thanks for the tips. It is always better to wash a vegetable completely and then go for chopping. I corrected the recipe now. Thanks
