Methi Bhaji

Methi Bhaji is an easy and a Healthy bhaji. Its basically a sabji, but as its made of leaves, we call it bhaji. Fenugreek leaves are little bit bitter in taste but this bhaji gets balanced with all the flavors that are added to it, and also if needed a dash of sugar is added to cut the bitterness of the leaves. 

Ingredients:
Methi / Fenugreek Leaves 1 bunch
Moong Dal 2 tbsp
Onion 1 small chopped
Green Chili 1 chopped
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Sugar 1 tsp {Optional}
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 tsp

Method:
Preparation for the bhaji...



Take Methi leaves and cut its roots. Now pluck the leaves and discard the stems. Wash the leaves thoroughly so that there is no mud, dirt,etc...left. 

Now chop methi leaves and keep ready aside.

Wash and soak moong dal in water for about 15 minutes.

Now lets prepare the bhaji...

In a pan heat oil. Now heated add mustard seeds. As it splutters add asafoetida, green chili and onions and saute until onions turn transparent and done.

Now add soaked moong dal discarding the water. Mix well once.

Add the masalas - turmeric powder, red chili powder and coriander powder and mix well. Cook for a minute.

Now add chopped methi leaves and mix well so that the masalas get coated to the leaves.

Add salt and sugar if needed {optional}. Mix and cook for around 3 - 4 minutes. Methi Bhaji is ready.


Transfer to a serving plate / bowl.

Enjoy with roti / phulki / jowar bhakri as per liking...
