Methi Gajar ki Sabzi

Monday, June 29, 2015

I love including stir fries as a part of my meal, Simple Stir fries that bring out the flavor of the vegetables used rather than masking the entire dish with heavy use of spices.


This Carrot & Methi Leaves stir fry is as simple as it gets, As the name suggests, It is packed with the goodness of carrots & fenugreek leaves. It has just a bit of heat from a couple of green chilies used & a hit of flavor from Garam Masala. Its that simple yet a very lovely dish.

Eat this with Phulkas or parathas or have it alongside Dal Chawal or Rice & Rasam. You can even stuff this in your sandwiches or make Kathi Rolls. Either ways, you are going to love this one

Methi Gajar Ingredients

How to:

Wash & peel the carrots. Thinly slice the carrots lengthwise & set aside. I used a Vegetable Slicer to do this. Pick & wash methi leaves. Drain all the water & pat them dry using a kitchen towel.

In a heavy bottom pan, Heat cooking oil. once hot enough, splutter cumin seeds. Add chopped green chilies along with diced carrots. Add some salt & mix well. Let it cook gently for about a couple of minutes. 

Add chopped methi leaves & give it a good mix. Saute for a couple of minutes more. Add the Garam Masala next. sprinkle very little water & close the lid. Allow it to cook on low flame for another 3 - 4 mimutes more. Saute in between so that the bottom does not get burnt. The carrots should be well cooked yet should retain its firmness, 

Check for salt & give it one final stir before turning off the heat.
