What a tasteful methi pakora dish, I will make it tomorrow after the lunch. I had made some snack recipes past year but then I got busy in exams, now I am free and back to my hobbies.

People tell me to eat spinach but I have found that methi (fenugreek) is more powerful than spinach. And so it is my suggestion to all that eat methi more in your foods. Eating pakora is another good way to consume up methi and I choose it often for iftar time.

Today, it is first of Ramadan ul Mubarak in Pakistan, feeling blissful and blessed. Its time is near for iftar preparation, looking around and thinking what items to make today. Wish I could make this methi pakoda but methi is not here at home. Looking around for other options for iftar, may be mix veg pakora will be the snack for today.

I like fenugreek meals as it is one of the healthiest vegetables in the world. And if there is some snack made with fenugreek, that's a double delight. Actually, I am looking for where to source it these days. If someone had stored it in freezer, that's the only way to get it and then make it's pakora.
