Methi - Carrot Mixed Veg

 This season we were lucky to get a lot of fresh vegetables from our garden. Especially greens have been one of our favourites in planting as well as eating. There are many local varieties of greens here, but one of our all time favourites is methi. Carrots too came out very well! So here's a methi-carrot dish popular in our home which we prepared throughout the winter of 2014-15 - a time we will always remember for the bounties we enjoyed from our kitchen garden! Since BM also happened at the same time, I decided, why waste this opportunity! Here goes!Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#
