Never before in time have we been so cautious of building our immunity and keeping a track of what we eat. Commonly available in the winters, fenugreek or methi is used in cooking a variety of dishes like saag, parathas, and many more. The leafy vegetable is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin A, magnesium, and copper. Its benefits are many, including lowering diabetes, reducing cholesterol, and even aiding digestion.

Many of the city’s restaurants serve mouth-watering dishes prepared with fenugreek. We’ve handpicked a few dishes from across the city and even shared a classic methi recipe for you to indulge in.

Tangy goodness

Open for dine-in and deliveries, the city’s first eatery to hire hearing and speech impaired staff, Mirchi and Mime is a trailblazer. Their Paneer Methi Kofta (Rs 445) is flavourful preparation in roasted tomato korma gravy. The tanginess of the tomato intermingles with the subtle taste of the methi and brings out a blend of flavours. The other offering here is Nehru Place Paneer Methi Makhani (Rs 445), made with sundried tomatoes, it is ideal for those who prefer creamier gravy.
