How to Make
- Soak the methi in some salt water to draw out the bitterness and leave for twenty minutes or more.
- In the meantime, heat the ghee in a saucepan and add onions, cooking until they turn a pale brown color.
- Throw in everything but the eggs and the methi, stirring and cooking on low heat for five minutes.
- Then add the methi (having first squeezed the bitter juice out) evenly in the pan, cooking for a minute or so.
