Menthe Tambli / Fenugreek seeds Thambuli Recipe Type 2

Posted by Veena Karanth at 19:28:00
Menthe thambli is a South Indian yoghurt based side dish that is usually eaten along with piping hot steamed rice. Menthe Tambli recipe is nothing but the South Indian version of a soup. It is obvious that any dish prepared using fenugreek tends to be slightly bitter in taste as the seeds itself are bitter. It is a diabetic friendly dish since fenugreek seeds monitor sugar control and stimulates insulin level. I have already posted one version of menthe thambuli recipe where in we soak and then grind the fenugreek seeds but here, in this recipe, we fry the seeds first, and then grind it. So, if at all you forget to soak the seeds, then you can adopt this recipe. In short, fenugreek seeds have amazing health benefits that could transform your health and change the life for the better. Even though the medicinal effects are same in both the methods, the taste has a variation.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. See to it that the buttermilk is a little sour, but not in excess.
  2. You can reduce half the quantity of buttermilk and substitute the remaining half with water.
  3. Since you have already fried the seeds in ghee, there is no need to add any seasoning but if desire, you can opt for it. In this recipe I have not added any seasonings.
