Methi Chole Recipe | How to make Methi Cole

Methi Chole Recipe | How to make Methi Chole

I have cooked palak chole many times. I have cooked methi chicken as well many times but including methi in a chole recipe is first time I tried. It is a very tasty dish which can be cooked as a gravy or a dry dish as well. This time I have cooked methi chole gravy which goes very well with naan/ chapati / paratha and rice.
I used methi chopped leaves to make methi chole. No special ingredients used for methi chole, instead it is a very routine tomato onion based recipe. 
To prepare methi chole, we should keep the chole overnight and then boil them just like it is done in any other chole dish. Here is the complete recipe for methi chole.
Happy Cooking !!!

  • How to make Methi Chole

    Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds in it. Let the cumin seeds crackle. Add chopped onion no and fry till onion is translucent. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder and red chili powder. Cook for a while. Add ginger garlic paste now and cook till the raw smell of ginger garlic is gone.

    Wash and cut tomatoes. Blend tomatoes to make a fine paste. Add the tomato paste in the pan. Mix well and cook till tomato paste starts seprating from the oil or you see oil floating on sides of paste. Add chole masala now. Mix well.

    Add washed and chopped methi (fenugreek) leaves. Add salt now. Mix well and cook on low flames till fenugreek leaves are cooked and whole mixture starts coming together.

    Now add the boiled chole in pan. Add 2 cups of water. Cook further for 5 - 7 minutes on low flames. Mash a little portion of cooked chole and mix it in the methi chole. It makes the gravy thick. If you like the gravy thin, you can skip mashing the chole.

    Methi Chole is ready. Serve hot with chapati / naan / paratha and rice.
