    hi, looks yummy…Why should we need to soak dry methi leaves?

    @ krithiga
    Soaking and rinsing of kasuri methi leaves is to remove impurities if any.

    Tried this recipe and it turned out fantastic. Infact, I added some paneer to it as well. I’m not sure it is traditionally meant to be a part of the dish but I love the texture and taste of paneer. It turned out great. Thank you for such a easy recipe.
