How much fresh methi leaves would you use?

Well...I usually get a bunch of Methi, Let the leaves air-dry and store them in air tight containers and use them whenever needed. For this recipe you will need to use 2 tbs dried methi leaves but if you want to use only the fresh ones, then 3 - 4 sprigs should be good enough.

Thanks. I always use fresh-don't know why. I'll dry some next time as I always have trouble using those big bunches. Thanks.

When you are drying the Methi Bunch, make sure you dry them for a couple of days. The leaves should be thoroughly dried and they can be stored in air-tight containers and kept in the fridge for as long as a year. This way, whenever I want to make some dal or curries, I will always have the Methi ready!!
