Methi Kerau

Methi is fenugreek seeds and kerau is dried green peas.  Methi kerau is one of the popular foods in every Newari Bhoj (feast).  I wasn’t a huge fan of this while growing up but these days I love it and it is very good for health as well.

To make this recipe, you need to soak both Methi and Kerau for around 5-10 hours or overnight if you plan ahead. This is a very easy recipe.
