A Rutabaga stir fry made with spicy red chilly and onion paste.


Number of serving: 4
1 medium sized rutabaga

3 dry red chillies

1 clove garlic

Salt according to discretion

few curry leaves

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup water


  • Peel the skin of rutabaga and wash it.

    Dice it into cubes. (It is a bit tough... So first apply a lot of strength and caution to cut it into halves, then quarters, then slices them and finally end up in cubes).
  • Grind the onion, red chillies and garlic into a paste.
  • Heat oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds in the hot oil.

    Add the paste to the pan and take care as it will splutter and splash as soon as it is in contact with oil.

    Fry it for a few minutes and add the diced rutabaga cubes.
  • Add 1/2 cup of water and cover the pan with the lid allowing it to cook till tender.

    Add more water if needed.
  • After it is soft add salt and fry it till it develops some hard crusts on the sides.
  • Sprinkle the lemon juice which will camouflage any unpleasant turnip flavour lingering.
