Methi Pitla is a variant of the evergreen Maharashtrian dish. The addition of fenugreek leaves gives an exciting twist to the otherwise comforting flavour of traditional pitla, making it a suitable accompaniment for a variety of dishes, especially those like jowar roti, which rely on the accompaniment for spice. The best part is that this tongue-tickling preparation is made using a base of besan and other common ingredients, and can be prepared quite fast too.
