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.
Ingredients (3-4 servings)
2-3 medium size white radish (Rabu)
1 onion sliced
1 tsp chili powder
1-2 dry red chilies cut into pieces(according to taste)
1 tbs curry powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
Piece of cinnamon stick
Piece of a pandan leaf (rampe) (optional)
2-3 tbspn Oil
Salt to taste
Wash, peel & slice radish.
Put sliced radish into saltish water while slicing. This is to avoid the bitter or strong taste of it.
After sliced, squeeze radish & drain water well
Mix all powdered ingredients above & keep aside.
Heat about 1-2 tbspn oil in a pan.
When it is hot, add mustard seeds.
When it is pop out, add fenugreek seeds.

Once onions are tender, add radish mix & curry leaves/rampe. Mix well.
