Deep fry all methi muthias (this is optional, you can cook methi muthia with curry as well).

2. Cut the both ends of cluster beans and cut in small size (2 inch long) or you can whole cluster beans as it.

3. Peel the potatoes and cut in small cubes. Cut aubergine in small cubes and chop the tomatoes.

4. Heat the oil in the pan and add fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds and mustard seed. When the seeds crackle, add asafoetida (hing) powder.

5. Then add all cut vegetables and cover the lid immediately to set all tadka in the curry.

6. Cook covering the lid for 10-12 mins. Stir in between to avoid sticking to the bottom of pan.

7. Add chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt, mix well. Let it cook for another 8-10 mins.

8. Now add some water as much as you want in curry and place all methi muthia on the top. Cover the lid and let it cook for 5-8 mins (if you are using raw methi muthia than cook it for 12-15 mins) on medium heat.

9. Finally turn off the heat and garnish muthiya recipe with chopped coriander.

Serve methi muthia curry with chapatti or paratha.
