Mullangi poriyal
Recently I tasted this mullangi poriyal in Roti ghar hotel’s Bharjari oota. It is called as Moolangi palya in Kannada. When I had this stir fry, I couldn’t recognize its prepared with radish. It was very tasty and flavorful. So I asked the name of the dish from the waiter and surprised to know its ingredients. As I got bored of making mullangi sambar or mooli paratha, I wanted to try this radish stir fry and see the response of my family.

Everybody liked it very much. I am sure, this poriyal is a welcome change from my usual mullangi recipes. My MIL makes a different variety of mullangi poriyal by grating it. Soon I will share that recipe too. Ok, now lets see how to make Karnataka style mullangi palya/ mullangi poriyal at home with step by step pictures.

Do check out my Mullangi sambar & easy mooli paratha recipes.
