Radish Green Fry – Mulo Shak Bhaja  

This is usually eaten as a traditional Bengali Lunch. I rarely made this but still enjoy as a once in while specialty dish. So whenever I bring Radish I make sure to get fresh looking green and use to make this dish. It is a tasty as well as quick and easy recipe and served with hot rice.
