  1. Absolutely loved the way you used fresh and dried fenugreek leaves! I do prefer using both of them, slightly different way though… Loved this! Bookmarking it for trying out soon… 🙂 The only problem with me is… I hardly get fresh methi here 🙁

  2. Made this last night. Turned out amazing. I love your recipes and pictures. The methi mutter was truly restuarant style. Even with skipping the heavy cream. Just the cashew paste was rich and creamy.
