Methi dhokli nu shak | methi besan ki sabzi | methi besan sabji

Methi dhoki nu shak is made with fresh fenugreek leaves, besan dhokli, and regular spices. Dhokli is a Spiced Gram flour dumpling added with fenugreek leaves (methi) to make it delicious and nutritious at the same time. It is a simple kathiyawadi-style curry recipe that is served with roti, paratha, or steamed rice. It is a very quick and easy-to-make recipe. Do try this!

The key to making tasty methi dhokli nu shak at home are;

  • Firstly, use fresh fenugreek leaves for a rich flavor. Make sure to wash the methi well before chopping, and chop fenugreek leaves roughly. Do not chop them finely.
  • I add besan dhokli with fenugreek leaves but you can add potatoes or soaked moong dal instead of it.
  • I use slightly sour buttermilk in masala paste; it gives dhaba style taste and reduces the bitterness of methi leaves while cooking it.
  • Lastly, methi dhokli nu shak tastes great when prepared slightly spicy.
