Sauteed Radishes with Hard-Cooked Eggs with Spiced Yogurt Sauce
6 large hard-cooked eggs, halved, each half quartered
1 scallion chopped
freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons ghee or butter, divided
1 bunch radishes (about 1/2 pound), quartered
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon crushed coriander seeds
1 teaspoon crushed sesame seeds
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/4 cups plain yogurt
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon paprika
basmati rice (optional)
1Arrange the hard-cooked egg pieces in a shallow serving dish. Scatter the scallion over the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
2 Melt 1 tablespoon of the ghee or butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.
3 Add the radishes; cook, stirring, until tender, about 8 minutes.
4 Transfer the radishes to a plate and set aside to cool.
5 Let the skillet cool for a couple of minutes, then return it to the stove over low heat.
6 Melt the remaining ghee or butter over low heat.
7 Add the cardamom, coriander, sesame seeds, and cumin; cook, stirring constantly to prevent them from burning, until they are fragrant, 3-4 minutes.
8 Scrape the spices into a small bowl and set aside to cool.
9 Put the yogurt in a medium bowl. If it is firm yogurt, beat it vigorously with a fork or whisk until creamy. Add the cooled spices, cilantro, lemon juice, and paprika; stir to combine.
10 Season with salt and pepper to taste.
11 Arrange the radishes over the eggs and scallions in the serving dish.
12 Pour the yogurt sauce evenly over the dish. Serve immediately.
13 Can be served with basmati rice.
