Blogging Marathon# 50: Week 2/ Day 1
Theme: Methi Dishes
Dish: Methi Matar Masala Curry
We are starting our second week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘Methi dishes’. I like methi quite a bit — what I don’t like about it is that it takes (almost) forever to take the leaves out, especially the store bought bunches which have tougher stems. I grow my own methi in summer and try to pluck them out when they are still young, so the whole plant can be used in cooking.
Other than that the cleaning part I have no issues with methi, I like it’s slightly bitter taste while I know some people who stay away from it because it’s bitter. So for the next 3 days, I tried to use methi in 3 interesting dishes that are both easy to make and taste delicious too.
Here’s a gravy curry with methi and green peas that is great to serve with rotis or even rice. I watched the recipe on a Telugu cooking show and liked how methi is used as the main ingredient. It tasted great with the addition of tomato puree, cream and the spices. I served with the zucchini parathas and it tasted yumm!!
