Methi Pyaaz Ki Subzi

This recipe is a favorite at home this season when it was accidentally ' discovered ' while trying to figure out newer ways of eating methi other than with potatoes and paneer - the end result is DELICIOUS !
10 Sambar Onions - Peel and leave whole.
3 Cup Chopped Methi - Salted for 10 minutes and washed to remove bitterness though I personally skip this step.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Crushed Black Pepper.
1 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds.
Curry Putta.
Whole Red / Green Chilies.
Heat oil , splutter mustard seeds , add crushed black pepper , curry leaves, whole chilies and garlic paste. Cook 30 seconds then add onions , cook for 2-3 minutes not longer- You want them to not even get soft at this stage.Remove onions from oil , add the methi and salt - cook methi 10-12 minutes till 75% done , now add the onions back gently stir and cook till methi is done- Onions must remain whole but soft.
This combination is delicious - mustard seeds and methi go together beautifully and whole onions add that sweet touch to each bite .
