   Hi Gayatri, It does not taste very bitter.The subzi has that slight bitter taste you get from methi. If you wish to remove the bitterness completely, you can combine the methi and little salt in a bowl and keep aside for 5 to 10 minutes. After that you can squeeze out all the water, discard it and use the methi for subzi.This will help you remove most of the bitterness from the fenugreek leaves.

Brinjal and methi is a famous combo.... what made me try this recipe is the use of the unusual masala powder and to my surprise this subzi turned out to be fabulous. The health quotient of this subzi is also high.... it's rich in iron and calcium along with being low in calories.
