These are instant Methi/ Fenugreek Leaves fritters which taste absolutely delicious. I usually soak Chana Dal/Split Bengal Gram and grind it to a coarse paste and then mix the chopped Fenugreek Leaves. Here I have used Besan/Chickpea flour. Easy, simple and simply irresistible!
- 1 cup packed Fenugreek Leaves
- 1 large onion
- 1 heaped cup Besan/Chickpea flour
- 1 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp Asafoetida
- 3 green chillies
- 1 inch piece of ginger
- 7 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 tsp chilly powder
- A large pinch of Haldi/turmeric powder
- A pinch of soda bicarb
- Oil for frying
Clean the Fenugreek Leaves. Retain the tender stems. Wash well, drain and chop fine. Chop the onions fine. Make a coarse paste of the green chillies, ginger and garlic. Tip the paste, chopped onions and the Fenugreek Leaves in a bowl. Add the chilly powder, Asafoetida, turmeric, cumin seeds, soda bicarb and salt. Add just enough water to make a batter of dropping consistency. Mix well. Heat oil in a pan. Drop small dumplings of this mixture into the hot oil. Fry to a golden brown. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney.
