There is no denying the fact that radish is one if the healthiest vegetables we know of. The root vegetable is a treasure of antioxidants and minerals which makes it an excellent addition to any healthy diet.

It can be had as a snack or salad – it is also a popular street food in Bihar. The dish is often referred to as ‘Mooli ka kass’ and ‘Mooli Ki Kees’ in many parts of North India.
