The words, ‘radish sambar’ may cause some people to turn their heads up in confusion – radish seems like a rather peculiar choice for a sambar at first.

Health Benefits

Radishes are a popular root crop that absolutely cannot be underestimated when it comes to eating healthy. Their pungent taste aside, radishes are worth every single bite. Radishes play a key role in relieving jaundice, the yellow discoloration of the skin caused by liver failure. It does this by removing bilirubin and regulating their production. They also prevent the destruction of red blood cells, another symptom of jaundice, by increasing the supply of fresh oxygen to the blood.
