Methi Dhebra Recipes


Ingredients


2 cups millet/bajra flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp semolina/rava
3 tbsp besan (gram flour)
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 cup fenugreek leaves
(usually fresh ones are used, but since i couldnt get any, i used kasuri methi)
salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/3 tsp turmeric
1/2 to 3/4 cup yoghurt

To be made into paste


5 green chilies
1 inch piece of ginger
2 cloves of garlic

Method


Add all the ingredients except yoghurt and the ground paste and mix well. This ensures that the spices are uniformly mixed.
Now add the green chili-ginger-garlic paste and mix well.
Next start making a dough using yoghurt (the yoghurt should be sour- khatta in taste). You might not need all 3/4 cup of yoghurt. Make a firm but semi-soft dough (like you would make for puris) and leave it aside for atleast 30 minutes to an hour.
After an hour, get some oil ready for frying in a kadai. Make medium sized balls (like you would make for puris).
Start patting out the balls with hand or rolling with a pin on a plastic wrap ( i used some wheat flour to dunk the balls in- it made the job easier) into medium sized patties and gently slip them into the kadai for frying.
When the vadas puff up and turn brown all over remove them and let drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Let cool. (Stored well in the refrigerator, they last atleast a week) You can reheat in the microwave before you eat.
Serve hot with coffee or tea or simply with golkeri (a sweet gujarati mango pickle made using jaggery)
