Methi malai mutter, side dish for roti

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.

  1. If you are using Fresh peas, shell the peas and boil them in salt water till tender.
  2. If using fresh methi leaves, blanch them in boiling water and refresh them in  cold water.
  3. Methi malai mutter tastes well with plain kulcha.

  1. 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
