Turnip Curry // Erra Mullangi Dumpa Kura

Turnip Curry // Mullangi Dumpa Kura

Turnip/ Mullangi is high in vitamin C. Trunip leaves are also used in some recipes which are rich in Vitamin A, C, K and Calcium. I had turnip when I went to Delhi. That is my first time as they are not available in Andhra as they will grow only in cold places and mostly available in North India. My mom made spicy gravy curry with turnip. My mouth is watering now. Sweet, tender turnip in spicy tomato gravy yummm....
