Carrot Methi Subzi | Carrot Fenugreek Leaves Stir-Fry Recipe-I never knew carrots and fenugreek leaves would combine to give such a flavorful curry!

This recipe is from Tarla Dalal’s Delicious Diabetic Recipes Cookbook and came across this when I was looking for some everyday dishes to post for the cooking from cookbook challenge.

The sweetness of the carrot is so beautifully balanced by the hint of bitterness from the fenugreek leaves / methi leaves.This will be a regular in our place from now on as we all loved the blend of flavors!

  1. How fantastic is this! I love the combination of colors. I found several new carrot recipes during this month of cookbook exploration but methi — wow. It’s perfect because I have some homegrown methi ready to pick. I will try this week for sure.
