Mod Alelya Methichi Usal is a traditional recipe for a Sprouted Methi Seeds Sabzi from Maharashtra. It is a great way to include large amounts of methi into your diet on a regular basis, especially if you are diabetic or trying to lose weight.
Wash the methi seeds and soak in 1 cup water for at least 4 hours.
Drain the water and tie the methi seeds in a clean, cotton cloth.
Set aside for 16 to 24 hours for the methi seeds to sprout well. Sprinkle some water every 3-4 hours on the cloth to aid to sprouting.
Just before using, rinse the sprouted methi well and drain the water. However, ensure that the methi is wet when you add it to the onions.
In a kadhai, heat the oil.
Add mustard seeds and wait till they crackle.
Add chopped onion, hing, and curry leaves.
Reduce the heat to low.
Stir-fry till the onions are translucent.
Add the rinsed methi and mix well. If the methi is very dry, sprinkle about 1 tbsp water.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Add salt, turmeric, chilli powder and jaggery.
Mix well and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat.
Add coconut and lemon juice.
Serve hot Sprouted Methi Seeds Sabzi with phulkas.
