METHI MALAI MUTTER

Methi malai mutter using kasoori methi, with step by step pictures

A creamy gravy which i was hesitant to try for a long time (since i am very calorie conscious now a days), of course most of us are like that. When i was going through my friend’s cookbook, this  tempted me very much and finally i tried this for a weekday lunch.
I used kasoori methi since i don’t have fresh methi leaves with me.

Tried it today, recipe is really good, I just did a little variation, instead of dried fenugreek (Kasoori Methi) as mentioned in the recipe, I tried blanched fresh methi leaves (fenugreek leaves) chopped.. Turned out really good!

Thanks again,
Krutika
