Methi Matar Malai-I recently tasted this in a restaurant.I was so doubtful about how methi leaves would taste with cream.But to my surprise, it was really yum and I found that they had included Kasturi methi.Last weekend hubby wasn’t at home and I had to cook for only two people who love creamy dishes(Yeah me & my boy). Methi Matar Malai got done in a just few minutes and we both loved it and had it twice.You can use fresh methi leaves too in this recipe and try.
