Today I made methi bhaji with besan, fresh fenugreek leaves, grated potatoes, grated bottle gourd, coriander leaves, some garlic cloves, green chilies, ginger paste, and some essential species.

· Asafoetida – a pinch
· Sugar – 1/2 tsp. (optional)
· Warm oil – 1 tbsp.
· Salt to taste or 1 tsp.
· Lemon juice – 1 tbsp.
· Eno (blue color pack) fruit salt – 1 tsp.
· Water if required I added ¼ cup (4 to 5 tbsp.)
· Oil – for frying
When you add pakoda in frying oil, keep the gas at low flame to avoid burning your hand.
After adding methi gota to the oil, turn gas flame on medium mode.
Let pakodas turn red from one side, then turn the pakodas.
Add a little bit of water in the batter for mixing it well. All the vegetables themselves have water in them so they will leave their water. Before adding vegetables, wash and dry (rinse) them properly.
If you do not eat onion or garlic, you can avoid adding them.
You can store the batter in the fridge for a day. Remember, do not add Eno, lemon juice and salt. You should add them just before you fry the pakodas.
Use fresh vegetables for better result.
