Methi Mutter Malai Recipe

20 years ago (Mid 1990's) when I was a school going kid I had gone to my aunt's place in solapur where I had Methi Mutter Malai for the first time. She had joined a cooking class where she had learned how to make it. I had then tried this dish at various restaurant across india but never found a taste anywhere like what I had the first time. I even asked my aunt for the recipe, but she said she said she couldn’t remember the recipe.

So, I tried various recipes for Methi Mutter Malai from other bloggers finally I found the á recipe for Methi Mutter Malai  from rakskitchen which tasted good, but it was not exactly what I was looking for. So, I made some changes in her recipe and was successful in getting the taste that I was looking for. Here I am sharing my version of Methi malai Matar recipe.

I am an Electronic Engineer and now a Housewife. 'Cooking' was never my passion. My mom & my relatives would have never thought that I could cook someday, let alone the thought of me having my own cooking blog site. After marriage I started cooking for my husband, initially it was a job for me and I never realized when that job became my passion. Now Cooking moves me & Cooking for my family & friends is a fantastic way to bond, reduce stress, and feel satisfied.
