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.
Mirchi methi dana ka Kutta recipe needs pounded green chillies, soaked methi dana, oil, few spices and curd. The best way to reduce the bitter flavour of fenugreek seeds is to soak them overnight. If the green chillies which you are using are too hot or spicy in flavour, de-seed chillies.
