It’s funny that this particular dish is one of my favorites, otherwise I hate radish (Mulo in Bengali). I don’t know if any other household make this dish or if they call it by any other name, but in my home we always called it as ‘mulo pithe‘, so I am keeping the name.
It is nothing but cutlet or tikki made out of grated radish.
1 White radish
2 Tbs plain flour
1 Tbs Sugar
1 Frying pan
To make mulo pithe, first wash and peel the skin of the radish. Then with help of a grater finely grate the radish.
I found out a way to reduce the smell of radish, you need to squeeze the most of the water out before the you do the next step. This will also ease in the binding of the final shape.
Mix the plain flour, sugar and salt with the radish.
Heat some oil in a frying pan, and when the oil is hot take one dollop of the radish mixture at a time and gentle place in the pan. Repeat till you finish up all the mixture or use up all the usable space in the pan. Using one radish you should get 4 to 5 cutlets.
Shallow fry till both the side become golden brown and a little bit crispy.
Your mulo pithe is ready to serve.
