Sometimes, bitterness is beautiful, and methi is a perfect example of this. Its mildly bitter taste and irresistible aroma unfailingly delight the palate, whether it is added to a subzi, roti , pulao or pakoda.

In this amazing recipe, which is a hot-seller at some of the roadside food stalls in Mumbai, methi is combined with besan and a couple of other apt ingredients to make crunchy, flavour-packed and aromatic Methi Pakodas.

This tongue-tickling treat is just perfect to have with a cup of hot tea in the evening. Enjoy other nice snacks like Yam Fritters and Bread Fritters .
