Methi Papad is a mouthwatering delicacy that provides you a clear taste of Gujarati cuisine – simple yet irresistibly tasty! A thin sauce like preparation with fenugreek leaves and a traditional tempering, is topped with shredded papads and served hot with roti, puri or rice. Remember to add the papad just before serving, otherwise it will soak up the liquid and disintegrate, spoiling the whole dish.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and fenugreek leaves and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the turmeric powder, coriander powder, chilli powder, sugar, salt and 3 cups of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Just before serving, add the papad, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
