Cook time
Total time



Ingredients (240 ml cup used)
  • 2 cups of methi leaves (you could keep tender stalks on) / menthakku
  • 1 large onion sliced or cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 red chilies broken. (Adjust to suit your taste)
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon juice or tamarind pulp as needed (I prefer lemon juice)
  • Oil as needed
How to make the recipe
  1. Pluck and wash methileaves in lot of water multiple times. Transfer them to a colander for the water to drain off completely
  2. Heat a pan with oil, add red chilies and fry on a low flame till crisp. Move this to a plate to cool
  3. Add onion and fry till lightly golden (for about 2 to 3 mins), set this aside and add cumin to the hot onions
  4. Add the leaves to the pan and fry them till them wilt off. Set aside to cool along with onions
  5. Blend red chilies first to a fine powder, then add rest of the ingredients: lemon juice, salt ,onions, methi leaves
  6. Blend everything well till smooth. You don’t need to add water. The moisture from the onions will be enough to make the chutney moist.
  7. This chutney does not need any tempering.
  8. Serve with idli, dosa, pesarattu.
