Was thinking to make some new dish today. What to make? With Spinach or fenugreek? Then thought to make something different using both. And here I came up with the idea to make some healthy starter. Idea of making something like pakoda of it is nothing new now, also my mind is always in search with some substitutes of frying food, as far as possible, so I tried it today to steam cook it. Here is How I made this.
1 bunch spinach leaves, chopped
1/2 bunch fenugreek leaves (methi), chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons green chilli paste ,
4 tsp whole wheat flour ,
2 tsp Bengal gram flour (besan) ,
2 tsp semolina (rawa) ,
1/3 tsp pepper powder ,
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) ,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1/4 tsp baking soda,
3 tablespoons oil,
1 teaspoon chopped garlic ,
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion ,
1 tablespoon lemon juice ,
salt to taste
In a bowl, combine the fenugreek and spinach leaves. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt, mix it well and squeeze out all the liquid.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a soft dough, using water.
Apply a little oil on your hands and divide the mixture into bite sized portions and place in a steamer.
Top with a little grated paneer and Steam for 15 to 20 minutes .
Steamed Spinach and Fenugreek dumplings are ready to serve hot !
Serve with chopped tomato & garnish with coriander leaves accompanied by green chutney or anything you like... This dish can be used as a starter or snack.
A healthy dish is here to start your day with. :) Have a healthy life with such nutritious dish . :D
