Garlic Roasted Radish

(From Banu's Cookbook)

I love Radishes especially these French Mini Radishes (I got them from Market Street which ahem is newly opened near my home). So, I thought why not make it into a side dish and here the result of that experimentation.

2 Bunches of Radish - I used French Mini, but you can use the regular red bunch radishes
6-8 Cloves of Garlic - you can add more if you just love garlic
2 Tsp of Olive Oil
1/2 tsp of Cumin Seeds

1/4 tsp of Lemon Pepper
1/2 tsp of Dried Basil Leaves
1/2 tsp of Red Chilli Powder
Sea Salt to Taste

1. Heat a pan, add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds. After a few seconds, add the garlic cloves (I just added whole cloves) and saute them for a 20 - 30 seconds until they are brown.
2. Add the washed and chopped radishes and saute on medium high flame. Once the radishes are half done, add the seasoning powders and saute for few more minutes until the radishes are fully cooked.
3. If you like them crispy, roast them for some more time. Serve it hot with sandwich or any other entree.

1. You can add any seasoning - not just what I listed. I happen to use that combination and like it.
2. If you do not like getting garlic cloves in your mouth, you can chop them finely and then add it.
