Mulo Saager Chorchori (Radish Greens with Vegetables)

What do you do with the greens that come with your radish? If you are like me, you do not throw it away. You combine it with a ton of vegetables and make a delicious meal out of it. This is an intelligent way to not waste any food. This is so ridiculously flavorsome with all the fresh vegetables I know you will want to make it every time, once you try it. Dry lentil dumplings are easily available in Indian groceries in the US and lends an enormous amount of flavor to this dish @sarchakra
