Methi or Fenugreek Leaves is one of the healthiest leafy vegetable. Both Methi seeds and Methi leaves are a boon to those who are diabetic. It helps in controlling the blood sugar levels to a great extent. Sprouted Methi seeds are considered to be most beneficial. If consumed with empty stomach it provides great benefits.

There are many varieties of methi leaves available but are restricted to certain regions only. While the obvious variety is the one with bigger leaves, there is another variety in which the leaves are extremely small. It is called “Elaichi Methi Leaves” meaning Cardamom kind of leaves.

In any North Karnataka Restaurant, raw methi leaves and spring onions are served as salad along Jowar Rotis. . It wouldn’t be appropriate if we talk just about bitterness of the methi leaves. They are tasty too. It goes well with cooked along with vegetables too. Methi Dal Recipe is one such tasty recipe which is just awesome.

There are two ways of making this methi dal recipe. One is by boiling the methi leaves along with the dal while the other method involves frying methi leaves and then cooking them along with the lentils. The first method can be opted when we are in a hurry to finish the cooking.

The consistency of this Methi dal Recipe is individual choice. Some people like it thick while some with medium consistency. If you are preparing it along with roti’s, then I would say thicker version would be better. Add up few pods of Garlic in the tempering (Optional) and check out the variation in the taste.
