  1. My experience with fresh Methi was not that great. Did you use knife to chop the Methi? Does that increases the bitterness? I want to try the aloo Methi paratha at home, but always puts the bunch of fresh Methi at the side thinking it will be bitter. If you know any tips to use Methi let me know.

  2. Hi Shibi, thank you!
    The rice was not bitter; atleast for us. Infact my 5 yr old simply loved it. If you don't want to chop them then you use the leaves as it is. That's how my MIL makes it.

  3. Oh my my! I am drooling over the idea of fenugreek rice! Fenugreek is my absolutely favorite – such a distinct flavor and aroma while cooked! I never thought I can put that in rice 🙂 Now, I have to try this!
