Aloo Methi

This dish is a simple one ... made with fresh fenugreek leaves, it is very favourful. I had got some good methi in this season of rains ... which is rare. So made it. And it made its way into my new post. Kept a little aside for methi paratha.

Need :
Fresh fenugreek / methi leaves , picked, washed and roughly chopped,
Potatoes / aloo (boiled and roughly cut),
whole jeera / cumin seeds,
a pinch of hing / asafoetida,
haldi / turmeric powder
red chilli powder,
salt to taste,
1 tbsp cooking oil.

How to : Heat oil.
Add jeera and hing.
Add the aloo and toss for some time.
Now add the methi leaves.
Add haldi, red chilli powder and salt. Cover and cook.
Remove cover after some time and cook till all water dries up.
Serve hot. Goes great on the side with rotis and dal.


  1. Hi,
    My mom makes one of best alu methi n I am surely missing it.. Saw urs n it closely resembled moms.

    I tried using ka suru methi.. It tastes good but nothing beats fresh methi
