Thechwani is a regional speciality of Uttarakhand, India. This hearty stew is flavoured with a combination of spices and veggies for a complex and satisfying dish. Potatoes or the round-rooted vegetable pahari mula are used to make this dish. Named for the method of preparation—never slicing, but rather crushing (thinchao) the potato or radish root into tiny pieces—the meal is a staple in many Chinese households. Some variants of Thechwani may also include additional vegetables, such as carrots, cauliflower, or peas. Leaves are the most nutrient-dense portion of the radish plant. They don't hold any grudges, either. They're a good source of protein, fibre, and antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, folate, and protein. People with diabetes can benefit greatly from it.
