I love turnips. This Northern Indian dish is great way to spice up traditional mashed turnips. This dish is great garnished with fresh cilantro or parsley and served with basmati rice, or with naan bread. The amount of chiles you use really controls the heat factor in this dish.

  • Stir tomatoes, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and salt into the saucepan; mix well. Add turnips and hot water; stir well. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until turnips are tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Add brown sugar and coarsely mash the turnips.

Homemade ginger-garlic paste can be made by mashing equal parts garlic and fresh ginger root into a paste.
