Methi leaves fresh or dried (Kasuri Methi), is too good for health. A chutney made out of Methi leaves is too good for health for any one including diabetics. 


Methi (Fenugreek) Leaves - 1 bunch
Tamarind - lemon size
Red Chillies - 10 nos
Asafodeita - 1/2 tbsp
Gingely Oil - 1/4 cup
Broken Urad Dal - 1/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Grind tamarind, Red Chillies, asafodeita and salt to a fine paste. Grind methi leaves seperately to a fine paste.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, when they splutter add the urad dal. Add the tamarind mixture first and then add the methi leaves paste. Mix thoroughly and keep stirring till the paste blends well and thickens.

The paste should become brownish in colour. Goes well with curd rice or can also be used to mix in hot rice. Also is a great side dish for dosa made with the batter ground on the same day (Puliya dosa).
