About methi poori

Fenugreek leaves are popularly known in India as Methi leaves. Leaves can be used both dried and fresh form. The dried form is known as Kasuri Methi and is used to add flavor to many dishes.

While fresh, fenugreek leaves have a clean, slightly bitter taste that significantly decreases with drying. The fresh fenugreek leaves are bitter in taste and having a pleasant smell are recognized as a powerful herb-flavor of the dish.In this hub I would be demonstrating the method of making one of the most popular Indian breakfast- Poories, with fresh fenugreek leaves and wheat flour. This is something which children enjoy and are healthy for them.

This is something that my kids love. I hope you try this recipe and enjoy the same. Please feel free to let me know your experience.
