Methi Pitla is a simple yet tasty Maharashtrian delicacy that can be rustled up in a jiffy to enrich your diet with iron, folic acid and zinc too. Zinc plays an important role in maintaining your immunity levels, and also lends a stunning glow to your skin. Just make sure you serve the Pitla immediately on preparation, as it becomes lumpy over time.
