Green Garbanzo-Methi Sabji and Methi Parathas

I know you must be thinking there is too much
methi going on with all the recipes. I had plenty of methi growing in my backyard so thought about making different stuff.
I was lucky enough to find the Green Garbanzo at a local produce store.

They're in a green pod, like peas, just one bean to a pod.

For the green garbanzo and Methi sabji:

2 cups green garbanzo fresh or frozen
1 cup fresh methi leaves chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1/2 inch ginger julienned
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp haldi powder
1 tsp dhania-jeera powder
salt to taste
Heat oil and saute garlic till it is fragrant, then add the methi leaves, little bit of salt, haldi, chili powder, dhania-jeera powder and little bit of water, cover and cook the methi leaves for 5-7 minutes, then add the green garbanzo and 1/4 cup of water and salt to taste and cover again and cook for ten minutes or till the sabji is done.Garnish with ginger juliennes
I served this sabji with methi paratha, but you can serve it with roti and rice.

You want to know my secret I mix the above sabji with rice and add yogurt to it. Yum!

Methi paratha recipe

2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tbsp besan
1/2 cup yogurt
1 cup methi leaves chopped
1/2 tsp haldi powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 small onion minced
salt to taste

Combine flour, salt, chili powder, haldi, and oil and mix well. Now add the methi leaves, yogurt and minced onion and add sufficient water to make a semi-soft dough. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Now make balls out of the dough and roll them and fry them on a tava with oil.

Serve with the above sabji or any other sabji or just yogurt.
