Spinach Methi (Fenugreek) Delight


1 cup finely cut spinach leaves

1 cup finely cut fenugreek leaves

1/2 cup onion finely chopped

2-3 tsp lemon juice or 1/2 cup yogurt

2 red chillies or 1 tsp red chilli powder

2-3 tblspoons toasted groundnut powder

fresh cilantro for garnish.

Salt to taste


For the tempering: oil, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds each a pinch, asofoetida, curry leaves and turmeric powder

Mix the spinach and fenugreek leaves in a bowl. Add chopped onion. Add either lemon juice or yogurt (whatever you prefer both tastes really good, if you like raita use yogurt, if you want to serve it like salad add lemon juice). Add groundnut powder and salt to taste.

In a tempering pan, make the standard tempering and spread it on top of the salad, add red chillies or if adding chilli powder add it separate in the salad. Mix all together, garnish with fresh cilantro.
