Aloo Moongra (Potato with Rat Tailed Radish)

aloo moongra
Moongra is not such a well known vegetable and aloo moongra is not a common sabzi. Some call it singri while in English it is known as rat tailed radish. Taste of moongre is also similar to radish (mooli). Moongra goes well with potatoes as aloo balances its sharp taste.
Recipe of aloo moongra/ singri
150 gms moongra (singri/ rat tailed radish)
2 medium aloo (potato) - peeled and cubed
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
1 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 coriander powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp amchoor (dried mango powder)

1. Remove head and tips of moongra and chop them into 1/2- 1 inch pieces. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When they change color, add hing.
2. Add moongra and aloo. Add salt and all the spices except amchoor. Give it a mix. Turn the heat to low and cover the lid of the pan.
3. Stir occasionally and cook till potatoes are tender. Add amchoor and mix. You can cook further if you want a well roasted sabzi. Turn off the heat and serve hot aloo moongra sabzi with roti or paratha.
