Methi Besan Ki Sabzi
A traditional gujarati dish prepared with a blend of fenugreek leaves, gram flour and Indian spices

This is a very quick & easy dish which can be prepared in no time. As gujarati we use gram flour in a lot of recipes like
  1. Handvo
  2. Sev Tamater
  3. Gujarati Kadhi
  4. Batata bhajiya etc
Today I am sharing yet aother recipe with besan. It's is a perfect recipe for winters.  Especially in India winter is the time when you get nice fresh leafy green vegetables available like palak, mehti, dill, pudina etc.

The dish is very simple to make and the blend of gram flour and spices brings down the bitterness of fenugreek

At my in laws it is one of the favorite sabzis and made very frequently. In earlier days I used to avoid making Methi Besan Sabzi as I was worried about lumps formation. I always use to take help from my MIL. That's when she gave me a few tips to make the sabzi smooth and lump free.


Tips for making methi besan ki sabzi
  1. It is advisable to add enough oil while making this sabzi to avoid any lumps forming
  2. As soon as you add gram flour keep on stirring to prevent any lumps formation
  3. Always add gram flour just before serving, as this sabzi doesn't taste good when cold

So lets proceed step by step for making methi besan ki sabzi


Pluck the methi leaves and soak them in water. Doing this will settle all the mud to the bottom of the vessel

Squeeze the methi leaves and chop them finely

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds

Now add chopped fenugreek leaves

Add all the masalas like turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt

Saute the fenugreek for a minute, Add 2 cups of water and cover the vessel

Cook for 10 minutes or till the methi gets completed cooked

After methi is cooked now add some chopped green chillies

Now add besan/gram flour just few minutes before serving. If you are planning to serve the dish later then at this point you can just switch off the stove. Gram flour must be added only minutes before the time of serving.

After the gram flour is added stir continuously and quickly so that there are no lumps formed

Methi besan ki sabzi is ready
