Quick Methi Salad

Another healthy and very quick salad. This is very traditional recipe of my Mai aaji (my Grand mother).
There is absolutely no bitterness in the salad. Now a days variety of salads are becoming famous but our old ladies were knowing such type of healthy recipe from their childhood only. Hats off to them.

Methi(fenugreek) Leaves - 2 cups
Grated carrot - 1 cup
Chopped Tomato - 1 medium
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup
Dalya (Roasted Gram Dal) - 2 table spoon
Grated Coconut - 1 table spoon (Optional)
Lemon Juice- 1 tea spoon
Sugar- 1 tea spoon
Salt to taste

For Tadaka
Oil - 2 table spoon
Rai (Mustered seeds)- 1/2 tea spoon
Jeera (Cumin seeds) - 1/2 tea spoon
Hing (asafetida) - 1 pinch


Wash methi leaves nicely and chop it finely. Coarsely grind the roasted gram dal in mixer. In a bowl add chopped methi leaves, grated carrot, chopped tomatoes, grated coconut, Coarsely grinded roasted gram dal, lemon juice, sugar and salt . Mix it well. If you want you can add chopped onion and cabbage as wel.
Heat the oil in small kadai add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, when it splutter add asafetida. Pour this tadaka on the mixture and mix it. Diet cautious people can avoid this tadka.
Fresh Methi salad is ready. You can eat it with chapati.
