Mooli Baigan Ki Sabzi- A simple and delicious stir fry made with brinjal and radish
Mooli baigan ki sabzi is a winter special dish made in Northern India specially in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh. As Mooli/Radish is quite strong and pungent in taste so many don’t like it but in this sabzi The taste of mooli blends so well with brinjal that you will surely love this preparation.
Radish cleanse our stomach and liver and purify our blood and thus recommended for jaundice patients. Its high on fiber so improve digestion and also regulates the production of bile. Rich in potassium so helps in lowering our blood pressure.It have a cooling effect on our body.Radish helps to cure acidity,nausea,and gastric problems.It is rich in Vitamin A,C,K.
