Gajar Methi Saag is a simple, quick, unique, extremely nutritious and tasty main dish. Methi or Fenugreek leaves have a plethora of health benefits, and are strongly aromatic and flavorful. They have a slightly bitter taste which makes it difficult to have it all by itself by most. In India, fenugreek leaves are normally cooked along with potatoes to make a delicious main dish but for health conscious folks who want to avoid having potatoes, Gajar Methi Saag is a wonderful option to consume this wonderful “herb”.

Ingredients:

  • Gajar (Carrots) – 300 gms.
  • Methi (Fenugreek) leaves — 2 to 3 bunches (small)
  • Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida(hing) – a pinch
  • Cumin seeds (Jeera) – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cooking Oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Salt to taste

Servings: 2-3 persons

Preparation Time: 10-15 mins.

Cooking Time: 10 mins.

Method

Wash the carrots and scrap/peel their skin. Cut the carrots into ½ inch square pieces.

Wash methi leaves well including the tender part of stems and chop into small pieces.

Heat oil in a pan. Once oil is hot, add hing and jeera.

When jeera splutters, add carrots and methi. Add salt and turmeric powder, and mix well. Cover pan with a lid and let it cook on low flame till carrots are well cooked.

Now add coriander powder and mix well. Cook till water is totally evaporated and the saag is dry.

Serve hot Gajar Methi Saag with steamed rice or any other rice of your choice.
