In Sri Lanka we can buy white radish with leaves. I like it when cooked with leaves. Unfortunately Radish we buy in Singapore is without leaves. But few days ago I could buy radish with leaves from an Indian shop. So I can happily share my recipe here.

In Sri Lanka we have few methods of cooking Radish. This Radish Stir fry is one of simple recipe. This is really tasty once served with rice.

Piece of cinnamon stick
Curry leaves
Piece of a pandan leaf (rampe) (optional)
