Ingredients for Turnip & Potato Stir Fry
Turnips, like other root vegetables, change flavour slightly when cooked. Turnips are mildly spicy while fresh, but when cooked, they become sweet, nutty, and earthy. This is also true in terms of texture: uncooked turnips have a crisp, starchy flesh.
In most plant food sources, a cooked potato has relatively high quantities of umami compounds, chemicals that produce a pleasant savoury taste.
Mustard Seeds :
If you don't bite into the mustard seeds, they have a subtle fragrant nutty flavour. You can only taste the seeds if you bite into them or grind them into a powder or paste. It has a strong and pungent aroma. Wasabi and horseradish come closest to describing the flavour.
Green Chillies :
Green chillies have a milder heat than red chillies, and because they are sharper and less sweet than red chillies, they will have a greater impact on the flavour of the meal.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
