Today’s recipe is ‘Mirchi Methi Dana Ka Kutta’. Rajasthani cuisine is very wide and has so many recipes to offer, today I am sharing one very easy side dish. You can enjoy it with hot chapati/paratha/dal rice. If you love spicy food this recipe is surely for you. In this recipe, another key ingredient is fenugreek seed/methi dana. If you are not fond of methi dana flavour which is quite bitter, you can prepare only Mirchi ka Kutta.
