Ingredients for Fenugreek Seeds Curry

  • Fenugreek seeds – ¼ cup
  • Mustard oil – 2-3 tbsp
  • Dry dates – 2

  • Cumin powder – ½ tsp
  • Dry mango powder – ½ tsp
  • Red chilly powder – ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp or to taste

How to make Dana Methi Ki Sabji

Thinly slice the soaked dry dates in long chunks.

Place pan over a flame and add some oil to it. When the oil is hot add asafoetida, cumin powder, coriander powder, fennel powder and turmeric powder and saute for a while. After this, add soaked fenugreek seeds to the masala and mix well. 

Now to it add salt, mango powder and red chilly powder. Mix all the spices well with fenugreek seeds and then add 1/2 cup water to it, followed by chopped dates, raisins and mix well. Cover and let it simmer for 5 to 6 minutes on low flame. 

After 5 minutes, remove the lid and mix the sabzi nicely. Cover again and cook for 5 more minutes on low flame. After this check the sabzi. For this, take some sabzi over a ladle and press it gently with your fingers if they are tender. Fenugreek sabzi is ready, turn off the flame and transfer the sabzi to a bowl.

Serve this flavorsome and tempting fenugreek sabzi steaming hot as a side dish to chapatti, poori, paranthas or rice. Store this sabzi in refrigerator for 5 to 6 days and relish eating.


  • If dates are not available then increase the quantity of raisins. If you wish to add only dates instead of raisins then add 1 to 2  dates more.
  • If you have soaked fenugreek leaves for 1 hours then cook them for some more time as this will make them tender and it can be cooked more quickly.
  • For making sabzi with gravy then add some water to it.

    Hi, I just tried your Methi dana (fenugreek seeds) recipe. Didn't have dry dates so added soft ones. Had soaked methi seeds for 11 hours, yet they took over an hour to soften. The curry flavor has come out quite strong and has a tinge of bitterness to it, although I added 2 extra dates. Nevertheless it's tasty. I plan on having it with rice. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
