Mooli Ki Bhujia

Mooli(Diakon Radish) is a common winter vegetable in North India. When i saw this interesting recipe at Priya's blog: mharorajasthanrecipes i immediately knew what i wanted to try for march bloghop.This curry also works as a wonderful filling for stuffed paratha. I have modified the recipe a bit to my family's taste.
