I made a variation of this recipe the other day for lunch, and was very excited by the results. It takes turnips which I typically eat in east asian cooking (what I would do for a dim sum turnip cake right now), but roasted like a typical western root vegetable dish. I had been seeing these turnips everywhere around Delhi and finally decided to give a new recipe a try.
What you’ll need:
- 3 large white turnips – washed, peeled, and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
- 3/4 cup of shallots, peeled
- 4-6 peeled cloves of garlic, mashed (I usually just smash each clove with the side of my knife)
- 3-5 tablespoons of olive oil
- Cilantro/coriander for garnish
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees farenheit. Toss cubed turnips, peeled shallots, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a baking sheet. Roast for about 25 minutes, turning every 5-7 minutes. Turnips and onions should brown and caramalize in the pan. Remove from pan, garnish with chopped cilantro and serve immediately. Enjoy!
