Winter season is known for its fresh produce of greens such as spinach and among those greens is methi. It is a popular green in India that is enjoyed throughout the year but it's during the winters where it is the most valued and fresh. It is generally used to make a dry methi sabzi along with potatoes at times and is served with roti or paratha. But did you know that methi is much more than that? You can use this humble green to make delicious snacks that will pair well with your tea during those chilly winter evenings. In this article, we will go through five of such snacks that you can make to enjoy your tea with.

Methi Muthia

You will get addicted to this snack. It is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and is perfect to pair your hot and sweet tea with. In the muthia, methi is mixed with a medley of spices in order to provide that flavourful punch. But it doesn't require any elaborate preparation. You will keep coming back to this muthia once you try.

Methi Khakra

Another irresistible dish that brings the traditional Gujarati snack with a methi twist. It is a satisfying dish that everyone will love. It doesn't take much of an effort to prepare and requires staple ingredients like flour and spices of your choice. It is thin and super crispy. Make sure you savour each bite with your tea.

Methi Mathri

This will provide you with a great change in flavour if you are bored of having the same mathri all the time. This methi mathri is a flavourful variation that elevates the regular mathri to the next level. It is delicious, easy to prepare, packs a great crunch and simply addictive. The slightly bitter taste of the methi also pairs extremely well with the sweet nature of chai. The best part? You can make these mathris ahead of time and store them for up to a week or two in an airtight container and they'll still be as crunchy as they were when they were made.

Methi Puri

This snack is different than the other ones on this list mainly due to the fact it doesn't pack any bold flavour but instead is mild and neutral but that's what makes it such a wonderful snack to pair with a cup of tea. It doesn't overpower your tea while providing you with a mild flavour that you will love.

Serve them hot with your tea for the best experience.

Methi Na Gota

Methi na gota is a traditional Gujarati deep-fried fritters that are savoury in nature. These fritters are made with gram flour, methi leaves, spices, herbs, and bananas. It is a wonderful snack that pairs fantastically with your tea and has been a teatime snack traditionally too.
