Moongre Aloo Matar Ki Sabji/ Radish Pods Dish With Peas-Potato

Moongre Aloo Matar Ki Sabji/ Radish Pods Dish With Peas-Potato


Moongra or mogri ki phali or pods are radish seed pods which are available during winter months. These are of different sizes and contain the seeds of radish so all of them taste same like radish or mooli. Because of their peppery taste, it is advised to prepare them adding aloo or matar. I like to add both of them while preparing moongra phali or radish pods


Radish pods are rich in ascorbic acid, folic acid, and potassium. They are a good source of vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, and calcium. These nutritious pods or beans must be added in the regular menu to get the essential nutrients. The procedure is very easy and the dish gets ready under 30 minutes
