Spiced radishes & pumpkin

The radish is a popular vegetable in India, particularly in the North where it grows abundantly, appearing in many different dishes such as sambar (a vegetable stew) and radish paranthas (an Indian flatbread). In this flavoursome dish, the radishes are stir fried in a heady mix of herbs and spices, while the sweet taste of the squash offers a delicious contrast to the radishes' peppery bite.
