METHI MUTHIYA( FENUGREEK STEAMED BALLS)

Adapted from youtube with few changes
It looked some thing similar to moong dhal Kozhukattai that my amma makes for ganesh pooja. So wanted to try this once. My first attempt was without Lemon juice and chilli powder. As we felt Bit of sourness and Chilli will make the taste better I tried this again and liked it ,felt it was different and healthy too to have it as tea time snacks. Haven't tasted this anywhere,so don't know  its exact taste other than what i made. So plz try out and let me know your opinion. Thanks :)
