Roll a spoonful of the Methi ki Launji in your mouth, and you can recognise all the major taste categories in it – bitter, sweet and spicy! You are sure to enjoy the delicate balance of flavours in this traditional preparation of soaked methi seeds, perked up with spices and powders, and balanced with sweet ingredients like jaggery and raisins. While soaked fenugreek seeds are used in this recipe, you can even opt to use sprouted ones, which makes the launji less bitter. You can savour the Methi ki Launji with rotis, khakhras or even rice, although the Rajasthanis typically relish it with hot puris or parathas.
