If you have been following my blog, you would have noticed that I have quite a few methi leaves on it. Methi is often made in my home. The bitter sweet taste that it gives totally elevates the taste of the most bland vegetable.
I love adding methi to anything and everything and how can the ever versatile paneer be left behind. The methi paneer recipe is a pure delight. The sweet and soft flavor of paneer gets simply irresistible with the addition of methi leaves.
The slight bitterness that the methi brings with it blends so well with the methi that it is an amazing combination.
If you get the two leafed methi then definitely buy them. As the taste is far more better than the more mature leaves. You can always grow your own methi leaves at home. It is one of the easiest greens to grow. Simply throw in some fenugreek seeds in the soil and cover with a thin layer of soil on it. The leaves will start sprouting in a few days time.
We have not added too many spices in this methi paneer recipe. It is made with very few spices that are regularly used in all other dishes as well.
I have even added a video recipe at the bottom of the post for easier understanding. Do not forget to subscribe to my youtube channel for notifications.
