Methi stir fry(Fenugreek side dish)

Usually almost all the side dishes will follow the same method...So sometime we will get bored of eating the same flavour,,,so this time I wanted to show the difference between a simple same old stir fry and stir fry with a small simple twist...I hope everyone will like it..

Fresh finely chopped Methi leaves 1 bunch(Fenugreek leaves)
Coconut oil/cooking oil 2tsp
Urad lentil 1/2 tsp
Mustered 1/2 tsp
turmeric 1/2 tsp
Palyada pudi(seasoning powder)2-3TBSP
Green chilly 2 sliced
Fresh grated coconut 1/2 cup
Salt to taste & sugar 1/2 tsp
lemon juice 1 tsp
water 2-3TBSP


Wash and finely chop the methi.
Heat the oil add urad lentil,and green chilly once urad lentil is golden brown add mustered, turmeric,curry leaves saute for 2mins then add chopped methi, give a good stir ,sprinkle 2-3TBSP of water and cover with lid,keep till the methi is completely cooked Saute in between to avoid burn and add more(1-2tsp)of water if required. Once the methi is almost cooked add salt,sugar and lemon juice mix well, after 5mins turn of the heat.
The Methi stir fry is ready to serve. Can garnish with coconut while serving.

To give a bit twist try this out...once you add salt,sugar and lemon juice along with that add shredded coconut and 2-3tbsp of seasoning powder,and saute for 2-3 mins then turn of the heat.....

o need of garnishing again...just serve hot,,,,rice, or any kind of rooti's

Note:if you are using seasoning powder method,then reduce the chilly from 2 to 1 or if you wish don't add green chilly....
