Carrot - Fenugreek Greens Saute ~ Gajar - Methi Subzi


I bought a bunch of methi planning to try a new recipe that I got from my MIL's sister. Today when I thought about it again, I wasn't sure whether it fit the dry saute theme as it involved frying. And so I took the easy route since that's what I prefer doing when it comes to everyday cooking. A simple, healthy stir fry using carrot and methi with no concoction of spice powders.

Ingredients: (yield 2 generous servings)
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp chana dal / Bengal gram
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
1.5 cups grated carrot (or peel and cube.)
1.5 cups methi leaves (washed and roughly chopped)
Salt and chili powder to taste

Method:
Heat oil in a pan. Add chana dal and mustard seeds. When dal starts turning reddish, add carrot, fenugreek greens and turmeric powder. Stir once, cover and cook until carrot softens. Next add salt and chili powder. Mix well and cook for a minute and turn off the stove.
