Fresh Methi Dal Recipe| Dal with Fresh Fenugreek Leaves
Methi Dal the delicious way of pepping up plain old dal with fresh fenugreek leaves. Takes away the boring feature of same old dal and get leafy veggies in my girls. In place of methi try using palak, rajgira, chavli, or drumstick leaves. I will not say shepu or dill as I do not like it myself. So if you try it out and let me know.
I remembered this daal Amma served regularly, she used one vegetable that grows wild in rains in Kannada it is called Harvi Playa. There were lots growing in my Aunts place and she sent it across. I still remember the aroma of the dal and the taste it was yum. It’s a pity that these local varieties of vegetables are shunned by us now. They are so much more healthy and the cheaper.
The other dal that I have made with leafy vegetables are Muddi Palaya( Golaa Bhaji), Palak Moong Dal, Simple Chawali chi Pale Bhaji or Stir fry with Cowpea Leaves.
The main ingredients in methi dal are toor dal, methi, garlic, ghee. In place of toor dal, you can use moong or even masoor dal.
