I attribute my cooking skills to my mom and mother in law and indebted to them. Both,  have been good cooks during their hay days and give good guidance.

Methi or fenugreek leaves are extensively used by me. I like the pungent taste that it gives besides the nutrition.Here is one such kind where methi leaves are tossed in flattened puris. It is known as” menthe kadabu” in kannada.  I am sure  that you will love this recipe. Do let me know.
