Matvadi palya or matawadi palya is a very healthy and very popular stir fry recipe from Karnataka. Menthya soppina matvadi or matodi palya recipe explained with step by step pictures. Matvadi palya is prepared using toor dal, fenugreek leaves, green chili, coconut, ginger and few other spices.
This is a menthya soppu or menthe soppu matvadi palya. You can replace menthya soppu or fenugreek leaves with cluster beans or french beans. This is a very tasty stir fry recipe and is my Son's favorite. Matvadi or matawadi or matodi palya can be prepared using either toor dal or chana dal (bengal gram dal). I like it with toor dal and I always prepare it with toor dal. So it's up to your taste.
Traditionally Matvadi palya is prepared using a lot of oil. The dal and methi leaves mixture is sauteed in oil for long time. It tastes good but requires a lot of oil and is time consuming as well. So here I have steam cooked the dal and leaves mixture and then tempered it. So this is a healthy stir fry recipe. You can also serve it like evening snacks or usli.
