Methi Wadi ( Fenugreek and lentil squares)

Methi is one of the leafy greens which can be used in many ways . Methi muthias. pakodas, parathas, puries and last but not the least various sabjis which we can make with this vegetable.

Today I have make a very simple but nutritious and tasty dish which can be had for breakfast as well as a starter or a side dish for meal or a n ideal snack for afternoon teatime.

It needs few basic ingredients and gets prepared in not time. You can steam the mixture in advance and cut into desired shapes and keep and then at the time of serving deep fry or shallow fry them.

This is my entry for this months vegan-thursdays  an event started by priya suresh  in which we post vegan dishes on first and last thursday of the month.

Ingredients :

1 bunch...................methi leaves ( fenugreek)
2 cups ....................besan ( chick pea flour)
1 tbsp.....................green chilly n ginger paste
1tsp........................turmeric powder
salt
oil for shallow frying




Method :

Pick the leaves of methi and wash them thoroughly.
Finely chop the leaves.
Grease a plate with oil and keep ready.
Now mix all the things given above except oil and make a batter .
The consistency of the batter should be thinner than that of bhajia ( fritters ) batter.
Now in a non stick pan add 1 tbsp oil and pour this batter.
Keep on stirring continuously on a medium to low flame till the mixture starts leaves the sides.
Now remove the mixture from the gas and spread it on the greased plate.
When it cools ( say about 1/2 an hour ) cut into desired shape.
Now shallow fry these methi squares on a non stick tawa .
You can also deep fry them . ( Deep fried ones are tastier)
