What a lovely, unusual recipe, M! I wanted to leave a comment on your kootu the other day but blogger was being such a pain that day. The kootu looks so good! Why is it sihi kootu, though? Just curious..

thanks Trupti. Credit Goes to my Sister in Phoenix who shared her recipe. Waiting for your recipe with Methi Leaves.

Thanks Vani. Ya, its an unusual recipe. Radish and its leaves are rich in Magnesium. Not many Vegetables or Fruits have this. Thanks for your comment on Kootu.

Regarding Sihi Kootu. Its a Kannada word, meaning Sweet. But with Reference to Kootu, we should not take the literal meaning. Kara means spicy and Kara Kootu is a very spicy kootu. But this Kootu is not the usual Spicy Kootu. instead of naming it as no kaara kootu, its sihi/seenh kootu. thats all. I hope its clear. This explanation is just my opinion.
