Spiced Radish Raita - Mullangi thayir pachadi

I didn't quite think I'd like radish but as I have already sang its praises in this Radish Masala Rice, I will go straight to the recipe.

Whenever I make some chapathi and a dry curry some members in the house hold would like something moist or liquidy, so I make raitas with beets or sauteed onions and tomatoes. So when I had these radishes it felt like the perfect way to try out this raita. It tastes good and would go well with rice as well. This is a very easy recipe. Here in pictures,

Shred the radish, prepare the coriander,green chilies, ginger, cumin paste. Season oil in a wide mouthed plan.
Add the radish to the seasoned oil, add cumin powder. Saute till radish is cooked.
Add the coriander,green chilies, ginger and cumin paste to the yogurt.
Add the whisked spiced yogurt and the cooked radish together.
