Methi with Chow Chow

A simple and healthy vegan dish.

You Need:

  • Methi or Fenugreek leaves, washed multiple times.
  • Chow Chow about 250 grams, chopped into small pieces.
  • Yellow Moong Dhal. Four tablespoons, soaked in water for about thirty minutes.
  • A small onion, ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, chilly. As much as you like.

Heat oil and saute the onion, ginger, garlic, cumin and chillies. Add the lentils. In two or three minutes they will start sticking to pan. When it’s difficult to dislodge them add the Chow Chow. Use the water they release to free the lentils. Add in a little fenugreek to get more moisture in. Fenugreek needs to be added in small batches. This way the volume in the pan is manageable.

Cook uncovered on low heat. Season with salt. Taste a Chow Chow piece and if you bite it easily then it’s done.

Enjoy.
