ABOUT Venthaya Thogayal / Fenugreek Seeds Chutney RECIPE

A very healthy, fibre rich, refreshing chutney with fantastic aroma and mixed flavours. I really feel for missing this amazing chutney all these days. I got this recipe from a guest recently and it tasted heavenly. Mix this chutney with hot steaming rice adding two tea spoons of sesame / gingelly oil and enjoy the meal. Any vegetable kootu is the best side dish for this rice.
