ABOUT Methi leaves chutney (menthikoora chutney) RECIPE

Well, living with Chutney Queens like my mother and mother-in-law, I have heard and tasted chutneys made from various vegetables. But recently, for the first time, my mother-in-law made chutney from methi leaves. Initially I could not believe that chutney could be made from a leafy vegetable too. Later on tasting this tangy chutney, I was convinced that indeed these ground relishes are an important ‘lifeline’ of our cuisine.
