Methi Matar Malai Recipe

Methai Matar Malai is a traditional north Indian meal made with fresh fenugreek (methi). Fenugreek has a little bitter taste, so combining it with milk and sugar creates a delicious mixture. Fenugreek also offers numerous health benefits, including the ability to lower cholesterol, reduce the chance of a heart attack, and aid in reducing diabetes. It’s a white gravy with a creamy flavor and is quick and easy to make. In this blog I will show you how to make restaurant-style methi matar malai in three easy steps.
