“My Indian mother-in-law makes this yummy side with turnips, but I actually like it best with celeriac. It could probably be adapted to any root-type vegetable. Hing (asafoetida powder) does not add to the flavor; it is actually to aid in digestion, so it is somewhat optional.” - by rubiabecka
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat; cook the mustard seeds in the hot oil until the seeds no longer are crackling. Stir the asafoetida powder into the mustard seeds; add the turnips, turnip leaves, and onion to the skillet. Season the mixture with the paprika, turmeric, and salt. Pour the water over the mixture, place a cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium, and cook until the turnip is cooked yet remains crunchy, 5 to 7 minutes. Return heat to high to cook off any excess water. Mix the coconut into the mixture just before serving.

"This turned out good despite my not having any turnip greens and totally forgetting the coconut. The only thing I didn't like so much was a slight bitterness, which I'm guessing was either the must..." See moreard seed or asafoetida. But nobody else seemed to notice it but me. I will make this again."
"Instead of asafoetida powder, I used a clove of garlic. This has wonderful taste, with great spices to tame down the pungency of turnips! I will be making this again!..." See more"
