Hare Chana ki Kari with Methi Muthia / Fresh Garbanzo with Fenugreek Dumplings

BM # 50  Week 2  Day 3 

For Day 3 under fenugreek recipes I have cooked a very very delicious and a healthy curry.I have made the curry with fresh green Chana which is also called Choliya . These choliyas are boiled and sauted with lots of greens, making it all the more healthy, to top it up methi muthias are added. Doesn't it make really healthy? The curry is really unique.

My hubby loved it as he is a hard core fan of these choliyas and Methi na Muthia. I normally stock these muthias in my freezer as they are added to a number of dishes. The famous Gujrati Undhiyu is incomplete without the addition of these.

Hare Chana ki Kari with Methi Muthia 
2 cups green chana
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp corn flour
1 tetra pack coconut milk
Salt to taste

To be ground into a paste
1 cup coriander, chopped
5-6 green chilly
Small piece ginger
4 cloves
Juice of 1 lemon
4-5 spinach leaves

The Curry

Mix the cornflour with coconut milk.
Add salt and add to the Chana mix.
Add the prepared muthias and cook for a few minutes.
Serve hot garnished with coriander.
