Menthya Tambli (Fenugreek seeds tambli)

I know you people would be thinking how many tambli recipes do I post?? What to do, this simple dish attracts me so much that I end up preparing & enjoy eating it very often.

Here I go with one more tambli recipe:


Ingredients:
1/2 tsp methi seeds /fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
2 cups curd/yogurt/butter milk
2-3 tbsp grated coconut
1 tsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch asafoetida
1 broken red chilli
1/4 tsp ghee
salt according to taste

Method:

  • Add ghee to a kadai, fry jeera & methi seeds until it turns golden brown (it leaves a nice aroma by then)
  • Make a fine paste of jeera, methi seeds & coconut using curd.
  • Add the remaining curd, salt to this paste & mix well (tambli should be like a thick milkshake).
  • In a kadka pan, prepare the tempering by adding oil. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds, asafoetida & red chilli.
  • Pour this tadka/oggarane to the tambli prepared & serve it with rice, papad or pickle.
PS: If you need it little spicy, you could add 1-2 green chillies when preparing the paste.

Time for the tip:
This tambli helps in reducing the stomach ache. So, if you are having stomach ache, go ahead & prepare this, it gives relief in as early as 30 mins
