#VenthayaKeeraiPodiDosai #FenugreekLeafPodiDosai : #FenugreekLeaf is called #Venthayakeerai in Thamizh. It is called #MethiBaaji in Hindi. It is slightly bitter in taste and can be consumed raw in salads and also used in the preparation of #Koottu, Chappathy, etc.,...
We can also make tasty n spicy dosai with #Venthayakeerai. The dosai can be made by spreading nicely chopped #FenugreekLeaves over #DosaiMaavu or the leaves can be mixed with Dosai Maavu as done in Spinach Dosai. The main purpose is to include the nutritious #Greens in our daily menu. The #venthayaKeeraiPodi Dosai is slightly bitter in taste but tasty n yummy and healthy too.
