Methi Dal Recipe


Methi dal recipe is simple and quick recipe and similar to palak dal. Fenugreek is low in fat, high in protein and easily digestible food but most of people doesn’t like fenugreek because the taste of the fenugreek is little bit bitter. Here is the best way to eat fenugreek in your healthy diet.
I have prepared it with fenugreek leaves, pigeon pea(toor dal), ginger-garlic paste, onion and some spices. Methi Dal is one of my favorite dal and it goes with rice or roti.
You can also use moong dal instead of toor dal.
