Menthyu Gojj / Menthyada Gojju

Lovely dish. Very very easy and simple too. Everybody must be wondering (just like me b4 I made it) menthya / methi seeds don’t they get bitter !!!. No it wont. It is mixed with tamarind and jaggery which gives a tangy &  spicy taste. Try this with chapathi OR plain rice.

  • Menthya / Menthyu / Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
  • Kempu mensinakai / Choop malaka / Red Chillies - 2 or 3 (whole)
  • Thengina thuri / Thenga / Coconut ,grated - 1/4 cup
  • Hunsehannu rasa / Puli / Tamarind paste /juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Bella / Vellu / Jaggery - 2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
For Tempering
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp sasive / kadag / mustard seeds
  • A pinch of Asafoetida / Hing / Perangyum
Method
  • Take a pan add 1/4 tsp oil then add fenugreek seeds and chillies fry till both are fried
  • Grind the fried seeds and chillies along with tamarind, jaggery and coconut add a little bit of water make a smooth paste
  • Heat pan add the grinded masala bring to boil add salt and stir for 2 min and remove from the flame

I always feel methi seeds are bitter.We have a Konkani recipe using sprouted methi..which I am yet to try:):)Adding tamarind and jaggery would definitely make it tasty!!
