Potato and Kasuri/Kasoori Methi (Dried Fenugreek Leaves) Veggie

Potato_Kasuri_Kasoori_Methi_Dried_Fenugreek_Leaves_Veggie_1 Fenugreek is used as spice and also as medicine. Fenugreek seeds and leaves are used often in cooking. Fenugreek leaves are very much aromatic and slightly bitter. Fenugreek leaves are used in dried form also. The dried fenugreek leaves are available in the market as Kasuri/Kasoori Methi (Kasur is a place in Pakistan where it is cultivated more) and it gives nice flavor and taste to whatever dishes it is added.

I love this Potato and Kasuri/Kasoori Methi (Dried Fenugreek Leaves) Veggie very much. It goes well with rice/poori/roti, if it is prepared with little moisture instead making it too dry.

    Just the right recipe. I was lazy this evening and found this super quick recipe. Took less than 20 mins to prepare. Came out very well. I used some finely shredded ginger in the end and some coriander leaves as sprinkles.

    Nice Subji,… its goes good with Chappathi and rice.
    Fenugreek green is little bit bitter, but this subji doesnt have bitter taste.
