Methi muthiya curry – we call in Telugu as menthikura badilu – a simple curry with steamed chickpea flour dumplings. We generally eat this with rice, will be good as a side with Sambar or rasam rice. This will be good to eat as it is also as a light snack.
This is my mother’s recipe which she frequently used to make in winters when we get lots of methi leaves. During my childhood days, she used to deep fry the methi dumplings in cold-pressed groundnut oil. These days, we are steaming the dumplings instead of frying 🙂 In this recipe, I have shown you the steaming method but you can deep fry or shallow fry the dumplings as well.
To make this recipe, steamed methi dumplings are cooked with chopped onion and dried coconut powder. Besan or chickpea flour is used for making the dumplings, which is highly nutritious and rich in protein. You might be interested in this paneer recipe with besan flour.
