Greens, Rice and Yogurt - Haakh, bata, zamutdodh – Speak the words thus and see the joy in a Kashmiri’s eyes. Its comfort food; it speaks of home and of long winter nights of comforting talks with family. Now we all know that Kashmiri cuisine uses a lot of spice and heat. So, for the days when we don’t eat the simple Haakh and are relishing the roganjosh and Dum Olu, we have a refreshing side of daikon radish with yougurt. ‘It balances out the heat and spice of the rest of the food and aids digestion’, my Grandma would say. As for me I love this dish – Balancing properties or not! Here’s to all Radish lovers !!
Note: This goes well with spicy and hot dishes, but you can serve it like any other raita or eat it as a salad. And If you make it with a bunch of red radishes, this dish looks beautiful!
