Fenugreek / methi leaves are widely used in Indian cuisine and are well known for their innumerable health benefits. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber, helps in reducing cholesterol, heart diseases and diabetes and relieves indigestion, heartburn and chronic cough. There are many more health and beauty benefits by including these leaves in our meals.
Vendhya keerai sambar is one of my favorite recipes using this healthy greens. This sambar is very delicious and the freshly ground masala adds in lots of flavor. Serve the sambar with rice and any thoran/poriyal. I made carrot beans thoran which pairs well this sambar. It goes well with idli and dosa too.
Notes and Tips
- Methi leaves turn more bitter after chopping. I pluck only the leaves while cleaning, so no need to chop them.
- Adjust red chillies according to your spice preference. The amount specified in the recipe makes a mildly spiced sambar.
