Stir Fried Radish and walnut salad -A specialty of Kashmir

Muji chatin is a popular recipe from Kashmiri is made by sauteing grated raddish in mustard oil,This is like a crisp salad or a side dish. Radish is called muji in Kashmir.Though it is not ground to make a paste like regular chutney but still it is referred as chutney.

The use of mustard oil gives it a pungent and smoky taste and only salt and kashmiri chili powder are added into it. Addition of walnuts and lemon juice depend on individual choice.There is one more variation of making Mujj chatin which I will post later.

This can be served with daal,rice combo or chapati and curry and the leftover chutney can be used to stuff in parathas.
