BM #104 Day 11 - 

For the 5th day of snacks from Odisha, check these fenugreek Fritters or Methi Bora as they are called in Odiya.

These are super simple to make if methi leaves are handy.
My kids complained that they were a tad bitter but the adults loved it. I later asked my kids to eat it with yogurt rice and they finished their share :).

In a bowl, add the chopped methi, salt, ajwain and set aside for a while.

  2. I am sure those pakodas must have tasted out of the world!.. I love the ones where greens are added as its a good way to include these. Very nice pick Harini.

  3. These pakoras look so nice and crisp , so nutritious too ! We normally make these with spinach , but I bet these must be tastier . Great share .

  4. These pakoras look nice and crispy Harini. We also make them with Spinach but meths looks really interesting. Will try them. Nice share Harini.

  8. The fritters look crispy and inviting. I had a similar experience recently of the bitterness of the methi coming through a fried dish. I was wondering whether it was because of the strongly flavored home grown methi.
