    hi mullai,

    the same works well with spinach also. channa saag. You may have to soak channa overnight and cook it with 1 tsp of oil, red chilli powder and salt. Then take half the quantity of it and blend it. i think it is typographical error. it should be kasoori methi. It is really yumm!!
    I really appreciate your hard work and admire.

      You can use any variety, yellow channa is fine too. There are a couple of recipes in this site using fresh fenugreek leaves. Use the search button to find related recipes. Actually you can make pulav….,add a few while making potato curry…, most punbaji dishes include this in the preparation… look for them, or make plain Vendheya Keerai Poriyal to finish the whole bunch.  One small piece of advice, pls buy whats actually necessary, don't go for big bunches….you can't totally rely on my website. I know the fact that they usually come in big bunches, so pls plan ahead before buying. No offense, I'm also a homemaker like you and cook with whats available at home and can't respond immediately to all the recipe requests.

    Hello Mr.Manoo,

    Better not to worry about those comments..If u ignore, he himself wil stop commenting.
    Also, the fact is that am trying out ur recipes n it really turns out to be good. There is no point in taking such horifying comments to heart.
