Palak Methi Muthia represents perfection in flavour, nutrition and visual appeal. The flavours of spinach and fenugreek balance each other very well in these steamed iron and folic acid rich dumplings, which get a further boost in aroma from the tempering of mustard and sesame seeds. Palak Methi Muthia makes a delicious treat when served with nutritious green chutney.
