Methi Mutter malai

"Methi" or Fenugreek is a wonderful green leafy vegetable full of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. It helps cleanse your system, improve your eyesight and increase resistance and immunity level of your body against toxins. And though it is packed with nutrients, there's only one thing which could possibly draw you away from it, and that is it's slightly-bitter taste. 
For the first time in my life, I had this Methi mutter malai dish in one of the restaurants in Pune a couple of months back.Methi mutter Malai is a punjabi recipe.It tastes amazing, not bitter at all. It is usually served with Puri/roti/paratha or hot naan. It is rich, creamy and delicious! Give it a try gals......, So here's sharing with you another healthy and tasty recipe!!
