Leafy veggies are filled with lots of nutritional values. It is suggested to include leafy vegetables in our meal atleast thrice a week. Methi leaves can be used to make parathas, sukha sabzi or gravies too.
Here I have made a dry version of methi leaves, wherein grated coconut is the base and this can be served as side dish with rice or chapatis. To enhance , i have added sprouted pulses too, you can add boiled green or yellow moong too instead of pulses.
