Fenugreek Leaves with Vegetables (Methi Chochhori)

This is a healthy power-packed meal full of vegetables. I’ve used frozen fenugreek leaves. Its already cleaned so it is a real short cut when you need a quick meal. You can use fresh fenugreek leaves too from the produce isle in Indian groceries but it takes time to sort out the leaves, discard the stems and wash really well of any grime and dirt. Dried lentil dumplings are readily available in Indian groceries @sarchakra
