Gavthi methi or baby methi is easily available in market in Mumbai,You will usually see vegetable vendors from Vasai selling it.This variant of methi is grown in sand near sea shore and is less bitter in taste than regular methi.This vegetable needs to be washed thoroughly before cooking to remove sand from it.As a kid I remember my mom making this bhaji,but since my marriage I never tried it…Yesterday saw it in a market and decided to give it a try….called up mom and got the recipe….recipe is easy,cleaning this vege is a big task….
