There is a Japanese restaurant near my husband's work place. They make some spicy and flavorful japanese curry sauce and add beef or vegetable to it, that's their only menu. They'll garnish the rice by placing a colorful radish pickle (Fukujin zuke) over it. Now it's become my husband's favorite pickle. I started to make the pickle, but was not able to get the purple perilla leaves that gives the pickle a bright pink color, so i seasoned the pickled radish with indian spices and made it into an indian spicy pickle.
