White radish,All I know  was to make sambar, kootu , until my husband got 8 radish for 2 of us...I was fed up making sambar and kootu, tried curry couple of times but he did not like the smell. Many don't like the smell even in sambar..anyway I had to finish it off when I asked Mr.Google, he told me couple of ways to to cook and one among that was this chutney.I tried this for chapathi and to my surprise my husband liked and he couldn't figure out it was radish.From that day I have been making this chutney for idly/dosa, chapathi  and rice.  
It's so easy to make that it never occurred to me that I should write here till one of my neighbour asked me about this.
Here is the recipe..plz to adjust spice according to your taste.

2) Heat oil in a pan and add the grated  radish and saute and cook well with salt and turmeric powder  till it is dry. And. Keep it aside.
3) Heat oil in another pan and fry corrinder seed ,urad and red chilli and when cool grind it along with the tamarind,without adding water .
4) Now add the sauted radish to this and grind according to your taste to a smooth paste or coarse paste .
