Methichi Bhaji | Fenugreek Leaves Vegetable

Methichi Bhaji or Methi ki Sabzi is very common in Maharashtra. It is regularly made , like twice a week in different types. Like, I made today dry methi Bhaji with Peanuts powder and sometime I make patal methichi Bhaji (Methi curry with peanuts).

My Grandmother has a lot of Methi / Fenugreek Leaves at her own farm. Whenever we go to her place, she always have these fresh methi leaves and we love to eat methichi patal Bhaji with Bhakri.
Today, I also have lot of methi bunches at my home, because I am planning for more greens to my kids. This vegetable I make often but never realized to post here. Today I have some time to play with camera and I am making this methichi Bhaji with roasted peanuts powder, so enjoy this recipe from my Lazy Kitchen !!!
