I have loved methi moothiya ever since I remember. Eating Oondhiya meant picking out the moothiya and eating them before anyone else got them. :D
This vegetable incorporates those methi moothiya. I really can't make them as well as my favorite Gujarati Aunties do, so I did what I thought was best. I went to Prashant Corner in Thane and bought them. Trust me, they make excellent stuff there.
One taste of this sabzi and my husband went... "Wow! They are crisp! This is amazing!"
Try it. I am sure you and your family members will love it as much as we did.
- 2 cups vaalore (also known as baalore, vaal, field beans) washed and broken into pieces
- 100 gram methi moothiya (you will find them at any Gujarati store)
- 2 tsp oil
- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 2 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1/2 tsp amchur or dry mango powder
- 2 tbsp grated jaggery
- salt to taste
Once the beans are soft, add the jaggery and the motthiya and simmer for two more minutes.
Serve hot with chapatis.
