    Methi can be soaked in water the previous night.Just one spoon would do.Next day have it along with the water.It is good for health.Methi has cooling tendency as far as I know.Even for menopause problems as well as menstrual problems.

    Dear friends,

    Methi is good especially during those days for women. if you dont like bitter taste of it you can sprout it and store whenever you cook tour dal for sambar you can 1 or 2 tsp of this sprouted methi. try it and ul be surprised about the delicious taste and flavour of sambar.

    here is a recipe with sprouted methi.

    1 cup tour dal
    1/4 cup sprouted methi
    4 garlic cloves
    tamarind pulp 2 tbs(adjust to ur taste)
    salt

    for seasoning
    mustard
    jeera
    kalonji or kaal jeera(onion seeds)
    hing
    curry leaves

    cook dal with other ingredients except salt. season it and add salt. it goes well with chapathi and rice without any cutting vetting job........
