Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

Cast your vote for Garlic and Fenugreek greens pancakes

We find many varieties of pancakes in the world. I believe garlic and fenugreek greens pancakes are some of the best. They are very healthy and delicious. The best part is that they remain fresh for a few days, provided they are roasted using some butter or oil.

It is a perfect food to take camping or for other outings. They are so good that you can eat them just like that or eat with a curry or a pickle. Children like to eat it with tomato sauce.

Step-By-Step Images and Instructions

  • Take a mixing bowl. Add all the ingredients shown in the list. Knead well to form a smooth, firm dough. No need to add more water as the fenugreek leaves tend to leave some water. Rest the dough covered for 20 minutes.

  • Pinch out a lemon size dough. Roll it into a circle of about 6-inch diameter. It should me medium thick.
  • Cook both sides on a pan, adding a few drops of oil on both sides. If you want to store it for 3-4 days, add some more oil, roast it by pressing. Otherwise, cook like normal pancakes. Repeat the procedure for the entire dough.
  • Enjoy eating with pickle or with any dip or tomato sauce.

Note: Don't ever add water directly on fenugreek leaves, as they tend to give out bitter taste. Always use pat dried fenugreek leaves while making the curry to avoid the bitterness.

Garlic's Health Benefits

Alluvium Sati vum, popularly known as garlic, has a compound called allicin (the sulfur compound) in it, which has medicinal properties. Garlic has a strong smell. It is used in many food preparations. Consumption of fresh, raw garlic has highest health benefits rather than eating it cooked or fried. It has manganese, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and selenium in it.

Daily use of garlic in small quantities can combat common cold, reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol level, and reduce the risk of heart disease.

It Potentially Helps Prevent Alzheimer's

Antioxidants in garlic may help prevent Alzheimer's disease. It lowers total and LDL cholesterol. It fights against infectious diseases among the elderly or people with a dysfunctional immune system.

Garlic detoxifies heavy metals in the body (lead exposure) and protects against cell damage. It is known to improve bone health. Eating it reduces estrogen deficiency in menopausal women. It has a beneficial effect on Osteoarthritis.

It complements best in most savory dishes, especially soups and starters. It gives a punch to otherwise bland foods.

What Is Bad in Garlic?

There is nothing bad in garlic, except that it gives bad breath after eating.The strong smell stays in the mouth for a very long time. Eating a cardamom or clove may beat this smell and freshen up. With my recipe, you can't make out the strong odor of garlic due to the pleasant smell of the fenugreek greens.
