Methi Malai Mutter


Methi (fenugreek) is a popular winter vegetable in India. I remember those cold winter mornings in Delhi when we were served hot Methi parathas with butter for breakfast, it used to taste so good!

Since methi leaves were in abundance during winters, mom also made a lot of things with it like aloo methi and one of my absolute favorites was this Methi Matar Malai.

This recipe has 3 main components to it and hence the name!

  • Methi (Fenugreek leaves)
  • Matar (Green peas)
  • Malai  (Cream)

The methi leaves have a slightly bitter taste and so they pair beautifully with sweet green peas and fresh cream in this recipe.
