One of the perfect way to include methi to our food. Looks very delicious. Like the texture of the potato which really invites a lot.

I had no idea that Fanugreek leaves were also called Methi leaves. If I have trouble finding Methi leaves, can I use another more easily found green in its place?

Why keep aside excess water. Do you use it?
