Methi Bhaji in Marathi

Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 3 to 4 servings

2 big bunches of Methi (fenugreek leaves) (Tip 1)
1 bunch of spring onions
4-6 big garlic cloves, roughly sliced
For tempering: 1 tbsp oil, 2 pinches mustard seeds, 1 pinch cumin seeds, 2 pinches hing, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 green chilies, finely chopped OR 1/2 tsp red chili powder
2-3 tbsp besan (chickpea flour) (tip 2)
Salt to taste

1) Pick methi leaves. Wash and finely chop them. Wash spring onions and chop them finely.
2) Heat oil into a kadai. Add garlic cloves. Saute until edges become brown. Then add mustard seed, cumin seeds, hing, turmeric powder and green chilies. Saute for few seconds.
3) Add chopped Methi leaves and green onions. Add little salt.  Saute over medium-high heat then cover. If you notice that methi is getting dry, sprinkle some water.
4) Cook until methi is well done. It will take about 7 to 10 minutes. then sprinkle besan and stir well. Turn heat to low. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes.

1) To reduce the bitterness, wash and chop the methi leaves. Immerse them into cold salt water. Wait for 5 minutes. Squeeze out all the water. However, doing this will cause loss of nutrition.
2) Dry roast besan before adding it to sabzi. Roasted besan will get cooked faster and won't taste sticky after cooking.
