Aloo Methi

Ingredients to make Aloo Methi

  • ½ bunch Fenugreek leaves (Methi)
  • 3 large Potatoes
  • 3 large Onions
  • 8 Garlic pods
  • 6-8 Boriya chilli
  • 1 tbsp dried Fenugreek leaves
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Asafoetida (Hing)
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 Lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil as per need

How to make Aloo Methi

  1. Pressure cook potatoes for two whistles. Cool them and peel. Cut and fry in boiling oil, just enough to get a light brown shade. Remove and keep aside on a kitchen towel.
  2. Chop onions and 90% of the 1/2 bunch of the Methi taken. Keep aside. Keep the rest of the methi in the plucked state.
  3. Heat oil in a pan. Add finely chopped garlic, mustards and cumin seeds till they splutter.
  4. Add onions and hing and stir. Onions and hing are added to reduce the strong flavor of Methi which overpowers all other ingredients.
  5. Add the Boriya chili with just a slit on them. Use Boriya (round) chili to give a great look to your recipe after plating.
  6. Add turmeric and salt and stir till the onions change color. Add the chopped Methi and stir well to mix with the onions.
  7. Add the remaining un-chopped methi to give a rustic look to the finished dish. Cook till Methi is done and add potatoes.
  8. Stir well and add some dried fenugreek leaves on top for flavor. Add some lime juice (optional).
  9. Cover and cook without adding any water for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot with Indian bread or use as a side dish.
My Tip: Use Boriya (round) chili to give a great look to your recipe after plating. Onions and hing are added to reduce the strong flavor of Methi.
