Methi Chaman

Roti’s and Paratha’s are something which I take to office everyday for lunch ! But making a new recipe which goes with them, every day has been challenging !!

This is one recipe which most of my friend’s love and it goes great with buttered paratha’s !!

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Whole garam masala

5 cloves of garlic crushed

Ginger Garlic paste

7-8 green chillies

1/2- 3/4 tsp Dry ginger powder

5 bunches of methi, chopped

Mustard oil

1 onion chopped

5 bunches of palak, chopped

1.5 cup of soft paneer (cottage cheese)


1/2 tsp sugar

A pinch of turmeric
