Hello & Welcome to Archana's Rasoi!
Here's wishing all of you a very Happy New Year!
This year, I am going to show you even better recipes!
So today, I am going to show you how-to make methi (fenugreek) bhaji (vegetable).
Methi (fenugreek) is a bitter vegetable which kids dislike eating.
But today I will show you how-to make this vegetable delicious but for that keep watching Archana's Rasoi!
For today's recipe, I am using a small bundle of fenugreek which will serve 2-3 people comfortably.
The ingredients required are-1 small bundle of methi (fenugreek) chopped and washed in clean water.
3 medium sized onions finely chopped, oil for the seasoning, coriander for garnish, 2-3 chopped green chillies, 1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida).
3-4 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp sugar, salt according to taste and grated coconut.
Now, I am going to start making the vegetable.
I am heating 2 tbsp oil. Now that the the oil is hot, I am adding 1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida).
Add 3-4 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 3-4 chopped green chillies and 3 medium sized onions finely chopped.
I am mixing and sautéing the onions along with the other ingredients.
The onions have been sautéed but I want to share a tip here.

To remove the bitterness, there are some people who wash the vegetable first and chop after but I like to first pluck the vegetable from the stem, clean and then wash.
Also, the addition of coconut and sugar helps get rid off the bitterness in the vegetable. It's now time to add the methi (fenugreek).
Mix the vegetable with the other ingredients well together.
Now that the vegetable has become soft, I will add salt, sugar and coconut according to taste.
I am adding approximately 1 tsp sugar, salt according to taste, 3 tbsp grated coconut and mix everything well.
The vegetable is ready, I will serve it now.
The aroma is beautiful. The steaming hot methi (fenugreek) vegetable is ready without any bitterness.
But I am leaving now, to make tandlachi bhakris (rice rotis) to have with the vegetable.
