Methi Leaves Dosa

Methi Leaves Dosa
Methi Leaves Dosa
Today’s dish is Methi dosa which is very famous in Karnataka. Methi leaves are combined with rice,urad dhal, Channa dhal, coconut , coriander seeds, cumin seeds,tamarind, jaggery &dry chili to get this batter. The taste is sweet, sour, bitter and spicy with these ingredients.
Though we get enough supply of methi leaves in Singapore, I have to go to Little India all the way. Hence I just buy them in batch and store for 2 weeks.
How to store methi for 2 weeks:
Remove the stem and store the leaves in a plastic box with kitchen tissue paper wrapped on the bottom and sides of the box. Check them once in two days and shuffle them. The methi leaves will be fresh for 2 weeks. Wash them only when you want to use.
