Methi Bhaji

Yesterday I planned to do Chapati for dinner. I was thinking for a simple sidedish for chapati then I remembered that I had some left over Methi leaves in my refrigirator after doing Methi Pulao. I was searching for some new sidedish with Methi. In one of my cookery books I saw this recipe. And it turned out very well. Let me share this with you

9. Sugar - 1/2 tsp
10. Coocked Green Peas - 1/2 cup
11. Tomato Paste - 1/4 cup
12. Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp

Method :

1. Peel and grated onion using large eyed grater.
2. Wash and cut Methi leaves. (u can sprinkle some salt here if you do not like the bitter taste of methi , when you are adding squeeze the excess water.)
3. Heat oil in a kadai, add ginger garlic paste and then grated onion.
4. Fry till golden brown and then add dhania, jeera, red chilly, garam masala powder.
