Notes

1. If one does not prefer to add tomatoes, then this ingredient can easily be skipped and the taste of the methi sabzi does not differ.
2. It tastes good if tomatoes are skipped.
3. If one finds the sabzi hard to eat then add some boiled potato slices while cooking the curry to make the recipe eatable.
