  • 1 Mixer Grinder
  • 1 Heavy Bottomed Pan


  • 3 nos Radish (Mullangi) 3 nos (about 250 grams), white radish
  • 2 tbsp Urad Dal
  • 1 tbsp Chana Dal
  • 3 nos Red Chili (adjust to your taste)
  • ¼ tsp Asafoetida (Asafetida / Hing)
  • 1 tsp Salt (adjust to your taste)
  • 3 tsp Gingelly Oil or any other cooking oil
  • 3 tbsp Grated Coconut
  • 1 gooseberry size Tamarind or ½ tsp of Tamarind Paste


  • Wash the Radish and peel the skin. Then chop the radish into small pieces. Chopping them in smaller pieces (or grating them) will help to cook the vegetable quickly.
    3 nos Radish (Mullangi)
  • Heat the pan and add the 1 tbsp of oil. Add Urad dal, Chana dal and Red Chili. Fry them till the color of the dal changes to golden brown. Towards the end add a pinch of Hing (Asafetida) and fry for about 10 seconds. Take this to the mixer.
    1 tbsp Chana Dal, 3 nos Red Chili, ¼ tsp Asafoetida (Asafetida / Hing), 3 tsp Gingelly Oil, 2 tbsp Urad Dal
  • Add 2 tbsp of oil in the same pan . Add the chopped radish (mullangi) and the tamarind (skip it if you are using tamarind paste).
    3 nos Radish (Mullangi), 3 tsp Gingelly Oil, 3 tbsp Grated Coconut, 1 gooseberry size Tamarind, 1 tsp Salt
  • Fry the mullangi in a medium flame till it's cooked completely. It may take about 10 minutes.
  • Add this to to the mixer. Also add Coconut and Salt.
  • Allow this mixture to cool and then grind it to a paste without adding water (add the tamarind paste here if you are not using the raw tamarind).
    Tip : Grind the dal and red chili mixture first and then add the cooked radish and grind to a paste. This way the dal gets ground nicely.
  • Take this out in a bowl. Now the delicious mullangi thogayal is ready to serve with hot rice.
