"My Indian mother-in-law makes this yummy side with turnips, but I actually like it best with celeriac. It could probably be adapted to any root-type vegetable. Hing (asafoetida powder) does not add to the flavor; it is actually to aid in digestion, so it is somewhat optional."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

turnips, quartered and sliced thinly
fresh turnip leaves, chopped
This turned out good despite my not having any turnip greens and totally forgetting the coconut.
The only thing I didn't like so much was a slight bitterness, which I'm guessing was either the mustard seed or asafoetida. But nobody else seemed to notice it but me. I will make this again.
Instead of asafoetida powder, I used a clove of garlic. This has wonderful taste, with great spices to tame down the pungency of turnips! I will be making this again!
A keeper for us-- always looking for good ways to prepare the CSA bumper crop of turnips. Made as directed except for: skipped the optional ingredient, added a small amount of garlic, and added some tofu at end to make it into a one dish meal. Hearty and interesting flavor combination. Make sure to use unsweetened coconut-- I almost grabbed the wrong one out of the pantry and I think that would have ruined it. Thanks for the great recipe!
This was amazing. We are low carb and this was a super substitute for potatoes. I followed directions except for the powder that I have never heard of that she said was optional. I used garlic instead.
This was SO good! I did not have mustard seed so used celery seed and 1/4 tsp dry mustard instead. Absolutely fabulous way to use turnips and the tops!
Loved the addition of the coconut. Made for a very pleasing dish
Looks and tastes good...
I hate tumeric and I hate coconut. But when you put the two together, WOW! I was halfway through cooking, tasted, and thought I was doomed. Added the coconut and fell in love. Actually, the more coconut the better! Great recipe, thanks rubiabecka.
