methi chutney recipemethi chutney recipe | menthya chutney | fenugreek chutney with step by step photo and video recipe. chutney recipes are an essential recipe for many indian households. particularly in south india, it is made for almost any reason and part of most of the meal. obviously it introduces a lot of variation to the simple coconut-based chutney. one such simple and flavoured chutney is methi chutney recipe known for its bitterness.

i have always been a huge fan of chutney or any simple side recipes which can be easily used for breakfast and also for lunch. for instance, i make spicy coconut chutney for my morning breakfast and use it raita or tambli for my rice-based lunch. basically i temper it with garlic, fenugreek and add yoghurt to make watery. similarly i make the methi chutney recipe for my idli and dosa. subsequently i use it as raita for my rice-based afternoon or dinner meal. i personally like the fenugreek based recipes for the bitterness taste. basically when it is mixed with salt, spice and sourness it yields a perfect taste combo and would be liked by everyone.

anyway, i would like to conclude by adding some tips, suggestions and variation to methi chutney recipe. firstly, the recipe is more practical and easy to make with fenugreek seeds and should be an ideal choice. having said that you can also make it with dry fenugreek leaves too. secondly, the kashmiri red chillies add a nice flavour and right amount of spiciness to the chutney. if you are trying with other red chillies, you may have to check the spice level and vary the number accordingly. lastly, menthya chutney is generally made with a watery consistency and hence can be served for both breakfast and rice. yet you are free to experiment with its consistency.
