I like to cook and eat natural, healthy, and tasty foods. I use minimum oil and don't use artificial colors and preservatives in my cooking.

Mouthwatering Snacks

Corn methi pakora, or corn fenugreek leaf fritters, are crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and have a lovely aroma that comes from the roasted fenugreek leaves and garlic. A perfect teatime accompaniment or afterschool snack, this mildly sweet snack can be served with tomato ketchup.

Fenugreek leaves have many health benefits. They are thought to help reduce cholesterol, control diabetes, and reduce liver problems. They also promote milk production in breastfeeding women.

Corn is very healthy, as well. It contains vitamin B12, minerals, folate, and iron. It has powerful antioxidants, beneficial nutrients, and plenty of dietary fiber.

Making this corn methi pakora is easy! Let me share the detailed recipe now.
