Hi.. Tried the recipe, turned out good.. But there was little kadwa taste of Methi left, which is not there if we eat in restraunt, why so?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Avneet, To reduce the bitterness we have added salt and left it aside and then squeezed the methi. If you yet find it bitter you can reduce the methi or you can add more fresh cream and milk to make it creamier which will make the bitterness of methi get reduced.
