Methi saga bhaja

Cooking Time Required : 15 mins
Cost of preparation: 10-12 rupees

Ingredients: Methi (fenugreek) leaves ( 2 bunches), potato ( 1 small), garlic pods ( 2-3 nos), green chilli/red chilli ( 1 no), mustard seeds (1/5 tsp), oil ( 2 tsp), salt.

Preparation: Wash the fenugreek leaves thoroughly and cut into fine pieces. The potato should also be cut into very small pieces. Crush the garlic pods.

Cooking: Heat a wok (kadai). Add the oil. When it starts smoking, add the mustard seeds, crushed garlic pods and chilli. Add the potato pieces to the spluttering seeds and stir for about 3-4 minutes. Lastly add the fenugreek leaves and salt.

Alternately stir fry and cook the with the lid covered till both the potato and fenugreek leaves are done.

Serve hot with rice or rotis.

Tip: Methi leaves are aromatic but leave a bitter taste in the mouth. Adding potato pieces or coarsely broken dal (toor or moong) helps to balance out the bitterness.
