A mouth-watering treat of mixed vegetables drowned in an awesome gravy of spinach and fenugreek leaves, flavoured simply with green chilli paste.

The addition of methi to the spinach base is what makes this recipe so interesting, because it lends a unique, pleasantly-bitter flavour to it.

Mixed veggies and onions lend a juicy crunch to this recipe, which is loaded with iron and folic acid from the greens.

If you want to boost the protein content of the Mixed Vegetables in Palak Methi Gravy, you can replace half the mixed veggies with low-fat paneer cubes.

Serve with Masala Paratha or Plain Parathas .

Very nice simple green gravy of palak and methi... loved the recipe... too good in terms of flavour and taste though made without oil or ghee. With parathas it made an awesome meal.
