                                                     Fresh methi{fenugreek} leaves were something which was never in my shopping list until new neighbour M introduced this to me.earlier i used to make curries with kasoori methi{dried fenugreek leaves}.dh loved those curries.but now he says thats nothing compared with those made putting fresh leaves.i bought a very big bunch of these leaves and so u can expect more curries with methi leaves in it.cut the roots from the bunch and store in a container in will stay fresh for upto 2-3 try this and enjoy...................
mutton cut into medium sized pieces-250 gms
onion sliced-2 medium
ginger-garlic paste-2 tblsp
green chilly-2
tomato-3 small
red chilly pdr-1tblsp
coriander pdr-1 1/2tblsp
turmeric pdr-1/2 tsp
garam masala pdr-1 tsp
methi leaves-2 hand full
coriander leaves-for garnishing
salt- to taste
             cut mutton into medium sized pieces.wash and drain add oil to a pressure cooker and add sliced onions.saute it.add little salt becoz salt helps to remove the water content in onions fast.afteri t turns light golden add the ginger garlic paste and green chilly.when the raw smell of that has gone add tomatoes and saute.when tomatoes are mashed and oil oozes from that add all the dry pdrs.saute for 1 min.then add the mutton. saute and add the methi leaves.check salt at this point and add more if required.close the lid of the cooker and cook till done.transfer to a serving plate and garnish with coriander leaves.................
