Aloo Methi

I love methi, but since I can't get fresh methi where I live, I use the frozen one. It tastes just as great and is really easy  to make. 
P.S- Methi and garlic is a match made in heaven!


What you'll need..
  • 2 Medium potatoes, cut into rounds
  • 2 Tbsp methi, if using the frozen one. Use more if using fresh (Fenugreek)
  • 3-4 Garlic pods
  • 2 Green chillies
  • 1 Medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp chilli powder
  • 2-3 Tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
How to..
  • Add oil to a frying pan and shallow fry the potatoes on medium heat. If you cover the potatoes with a lid for a few minutes it will help cook them faster.
  • Once cooked, remove the potatoes from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, in the remaining oil, add a paste of garlic n chilli. Fry for about 15-20 seconds till the garlic gets fragrant.
  • Now add the methi leaves. If using frozen ones, then defrost them in the microwave before adding them to the pan. Fry the methi in the pan on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add tomato, turmeric, chilli and salt. Mix well and continue to cook till the tomato gets mushy.
  • Once the tomato is cooked, add the potatoes back into the pan and mix well. Serve hot with rotis.
