I heard somewhere or i got confused?

I heard that carrot and daikon should not be cooked together because it is bad for heathuf eaten?

Eg stewing carrot and raddish, picking raddish and carrot together...

Carrot and daikon are a mainstay of Vietnamese food (not to mention almost any nabe dish). Nothing wrong.

Pickled carrot and pickled daikon are the combination which are put on the well known Vietnamese Banh mi sandwich type 'snack'.

What you probably heard is that when they are together in your fridge, becoming pickles, they really stink.
