Methi Kadhi

Methi Ni Kadhi
Today I am going to share something I am very fond of. That is Kadhi :) . And that too with Fenugreek :D. Isn't the idea itself enough to make mouth watering, well, atleast for me it is true. :P . Here is the way
I make it. Simple and healthy for all my blog buddies :) .
Just with little twist in regular Kadhi, also by adding Jaggery to it, to remove the bitterness of Fenugreek.

(Methi leaves,besan,red chilli powder, turmeric powder Jeera, green chilli,curry leaves, Cinnamon stick, cloves, ginger, garlic & jaggery )

Finely Chopped fenugreek 1 1/2 cup,
Sour Curd - 2 cup ,
Bengal Gram flour- 2 1/2 tbsp ,
Jaggery ( Chopped )- 2 1/2tbsp or as per the sweetness you want ,
oil- 1/2 tbsp ,
Asafoetida Powder- a pinch ,
Cloves- 4 nos ,
Cinnamon- 1 Inch Stick ,
Cumin Seeds- 1 1/2 tsp ,
Ginger ( Finely Chopped )- 1 Inch Piece ,
Garlic Paste- 1 tsp ,
Green Chillies ( Slit and Deseeded )- 2 ,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder ,
1/2 tsp red chilli powder,
Curry Leaves ,
Salt To Taste .

Method :
Whip the sour curd and to it add enough water & add besan to it and mix such that no lumps will be there.
Heat oil in a kadhai, addcurry leaves to it and saute till they splutter. Next add jeera, asafoetida, slit green chillies, cinnamon and cloves. Add curd mixture to it and stir continuously to see that no lumps are formed and the mixture boils well.
Then to it add chopped ginger, chopped jaggery, turmeric powder , red chilli powder and salt to taste . Add chopped Fenugreek leaves to it and mix.Cook on a low flame for sometime. Check the seasoning and adjust accordingly. Serve hot !

I added Boondi to it at the time of serving , and it was tasting heavenly. I liked it so much that I ate it even without rice , just the bowl of Methi kadhi itself was enough to please me. Try it , andIi am sure you all will also like it .I have to attend a marriage function here tomorrow, and as I am very much fond of doing henna ( Mehandi ) designs, I make it on my left hand . So was not able to do any work in kitchen on my own, and dear Deepak- my hubby, has helped me through everything for the dinner of tonight. :) I just kept on giving instructions and he followed it completely. So nice of him. I think I must thank him to make this post of today possible. :) . Well, after completion of the kitchen work, he was happy with the dinner menu, so was I. :D .

I have one unusual entry for Jihva too,check it out:D

sra said...

Hi Pooja, interesting recipe. Does it have any hint of bitterness or is all that removed by the taste of the curds and the jaggery?

Pooja said...

Asha : Can I expect atleast one entry from you already :P ? Thankd for your nice words. i checked your site, but today only 3 times i couldnt reach to yur comment page, everytime it saus page can not be displayed :( . your jello jaggery is simple superb. i love it. :) .

Sra: I made it for he first time , at the time of eating i didn't feel a little bitterness even. i think that is because of sour curd. you can also try it the same way.
Thanks for dropping by !
Stay tuned
