    I think this dish is best cooked a lot longer than the time suggested.

    This recipe ROCKS !! I love radishes and I've never cooked them before. They have the texture of a mini potato and they taste marvelous !! Put the cooked contents on your plate and 2 fried eggs (or any type of egg) on top of them ;)

    Gail - I parboil the radishes for 10 minutes, and then dry them, before frying them. They will not soften enough to be enjoyable by just frying.

    This is delicious, but my radishes faded and turned everything pink. There wasn't moisture to speak of, so I'm not sure why this happened. Maybe I need to turn up the heat... I think next time I'll fry things separately and combine. :)

    Agreed! I think I will parboil them first as well. Have been frying them for 25 minutes now. While they ave a lovely golden colour, they are still hard in the centre. Taste delicious though😊
