As it’s Friday today, it calls for cooking something special. And most of the weekends I end up cooking seafood like pomfret fry, prawn fry, baked salmon among others. As cleaning the seafood takes up some time I tend to cook it mostly during the weekends.
I made the pomfret fry, arbi ki sabzi and prawn masala with methi today. As I have mentioned earlier, my fridge is often stocked with the methi leaves and here I am presenting another recipe with the methi leaves. With abundance of goodness in it, it’s hard to resist the methi. The slight bitter taste of the leaves blends well with most of the other ingredients whether it is vegetables or non-veg. In this recipe I made the methi leaves with the prawns or jhinga as we call it in Urdu.
