Fenugreek is known to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics. In fact everytime I make this dish, I feel better the next day!

Recipe Fenugreek Eggs (Parsi Methi per Edu)

Ingredients

2 cups fresh Methi (fenugreek) leaves

1 cup fresh Kothmir (Coriander / Cilantro) leaves

2 spring onions

2 shallots

2 garlic cloves

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

2 tomatoes

6 eggs

2 tbsp oil

Method

Saute in hot oil all of above ingredients except eggs for 20 minutes till the water is evaporated and oil seperates. 

Crack the eggs on top with some water and cover to steam. Add very little water if needed to steam eggs. When steamed to perfection, remove very gently with a large flat spatula and serve immediately.

Cook till eggs are to desired wellness. Some like them runny, some like them hard cooked.

Tip: Make the base ahead and keep. Later in a non-stick pan reheat and break the eggs. Steam cook the eggs for serving hot.

Serve hot with Rotli or Naan.

Thanks, it is indeed not served in a restaurant. We prefer cooking and dining at home with good old parsi food.
