Methi Chutney Recipe
Methi chutney is a traditional north Indian sauce and is mainly served with Kachori. I have never missed a chance to eat Kachori whenever i have visited Chandni chowk.

The taste of Methi chutney is a bit on the bitter side. But, it does not mean that it is not eatable. In fact, if you eat it with Kachori or may be kachaloo, you would really enjoy that sour and bitter taste and seriously leave aside even the world famous Coriander chutney. When you eat Kachori at any good street side vendor, they do add this chutney on top of the aloo sabzi that they serve with Kachori.

These days it is also available as a ready-made mixture in market where you just need to add water and boil once. But, the taste of the fresh one made at home is always better and hence this recipe for you.
