Come winter and its methi growing in gardens, farms and in vegetable shops here in Pune. Popularly known as Fenugreek it also falls in the category of an herb.

Fenugreek or common methi

It not only tastes great when cooked but has immense health benefits too. It’s very easy to grow and is ready for harvest in just a few weeks. Some common benefits that I know of are lowering cholesterol levels. Some people claim cardiovascular benefits also. But its anti diabetic properties are well known.

Baby methi

Then there is the a tiny leaved methi which tastes even more better – some call it ‘baby methi’. Baby methi parathas taste delicious (almost like a snack) when you have it for a winter morning breakfast.

Grow & enjoy Methi and be healthy too!
