Servings: 4


Carrots sauteed with fresh fenugreek leaves

  2. Heat oil in a wok/ kadai. Add mustard, hing, cumin, let crackle. Add methi leaves, stir fry till water evaporates. Cook for further 5 mins.

  3. Add carrots, salt, all the masala powders. Stir fry for 8 to 10 mins or till carrots are cooked yet has a slight crunch.

  4. Remove from heat and serve hot with chapathis, parathas.


To make Aloo – Methi - Replace carrots with 2 potatoes (aloo), boiled, peeled and cubed. Then follow the same procedure as above, adding the boiled-cubed potatoes instead of raw carrots.
Wash and chop fenugreek leaves just before you add to any dish. Washing them too early can make them soggy. Also chopping them and keeping aside will make the dish bitter. So cut and add immediately to any recipe/ hot pan. And do not chop the leaves too fine.
