Methi Ani Sungtache Bhaji (prawns And Fenugreek Leaves)

I love the herbaceous taste of Methi leaves. Even plain with potatoes as a vegetable, in a paratha, with mutton in a curry, I just love it. This, I'm certain is one of my Dad's favourites too, my mum would make it for him often. Only she would use the tinier leaves of methi instead. When I make this at home, I don't bother with anything else. Also, if you wish you can squeeze a lime on this in the end. I find it unnecessary, but some people seem to like it. Just some hot rotis on the side do the trick. I do not know if this is kid friendly, my little miss does not like it!
