Gajar Methi Subji

Carrots (gajar in Hindi) are most commonly eaten root vegetables and are usually orange in colour, though purple, black, red, white, and yellow carrots do exist. Carrots can be eaten in a variety of ways raw, boiled, fried, steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as baby and pet foods.

The greens are edible as a leaf vegetable but are rarely eaten by humans as some sources suggest that the greens contain toxic alkaloids.

The roots contain high quantities of alpha- and beta-carotene and are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin B6, vitamin A, antioxidants, and other nutrients.

Fenugreek leaves (methi) are popularly eaten in India as a vegetable. Methi leaves help in digestive problems such as loss of appetite, upset stomach, constipation, inflammation of the stomach (gastritis).  Fenugreek has benefits for lowering blood sugar levels, boosting testosterone and increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers.

Now, that I have your attention let me tell you to chase away the Monday Morning Blues we at   FoodieMondayBloghop and this week we are doing the #177 Magic of Methi Leaves as our theme. Thanks to Sasmita for the suggesting the theme and let me tell you Sasmita has an amazing blog and I have quite a few to-dos the first being Spiced Beetroot Buttermilk, Masala Cookies I have quite a few sweets too bookmarked but then since I am the only person who consumes sweets in my place I think I will wait for some more time  :(.

Gajar Methi ki Sabji/Methi Gajar ki Sabji is the best of winter veggies to be enjoyed with hot Roti/Chapatti or Rice and dal as a side dish.

The main ingredients are carrots, fenugreek, garlic, green chillies. Ginger( I have not used) and onions are optional but recommended. Spices you will need are cumin, turmeric powder, cumin and coriander powders. You can use garam masala but I have not. Use lemon juice it brings the zing to the vegetable.

    Refreshing looking curry with its bright orange carrots and the contrasting green methi leaves. I like the idea of adding lemon juice and not garam masala, this will really bring out the flavours of the vegetables and the greens.

      We are avoiding garam masala as much as possible Sujata. Even the lemon is used sparingly.;D Thanks.

    I can imagine how beautifully the sweetness of carrots and the slight bitterness of methi would pair. Beautiful recipe, and a delicious way to use methi in season.

    Gajar methi sabzi looks so colourful and delicious. Lemon juice definitely makes it lip-smacking. Loved this spicy tangy colourful sabzi.

    Archana, I love simple recipes and the ones that combine 2 or more veggies, just like yours here. Makes it more filling and is healthy too. I have a similar recipe with no masala, using peas and its best eaten with poli or garam bhaat and varan.

    I also cook it similarly. The methi balances the sweetness of carrots. Looks amazing arch
