Aloo Methi Recipe a quick, easy and healthy recipe. This recipe is of my mother and we usually make this once a week. This dish goes well with chapati, roti, bread and as a side dish with rice. Aloo are called as potatoes and fenugreek leaves as methi in India.
My hubby loves aloo methi thank God he at-least loves one green vegetable 😉 so make them quite often. The recipe comprises of basic ingredients and mildly spiced with green chilies.
The only challenge to make methi sabzi is to separate the leaves. I took twenty mins only cleaning and rinsing the vegetable. Same goes for spinach or other green leafy veggies.
This aloo methi sabzi could be packed as lunch box or quick meal along with chapatis and pickle. If it sounds too boring for your family then send some french fries along so it looks and tastes interesting.
Fenugreek leaves are very good for health and has some great benefits to human body. So do include them in your daily diet.
For now let’s make step by step aloo methi recipe:
1. Firstly separate leaves from the stem rinse them in water. Place them on a colander and allow water to drain.
2. Take a wide bottomed pan add oil. Once oil is hot add onion and saute.
3. Now add garlic cloves.
4. Once the onion color changes add the rinsed methi leaves.
5. Mix nicely also add the potatoes.
6. Add little salt. Cover the vegetable with a lid containing some water.
7. Allow the vegetable to cook in it’s own juices. Please don’t add water.
8. In between remove the lid and keep stirring. Place the lid back with water. Once the potatoes are cooked your vegetable is done. Switch off the gas and serve aloo methi hot with roti or bread.

One option is to soak them in a bowl if water. It loosens the soil, then rinse out under running water in a colander. Separating leaves takes time…..but the health benefits bake it worth the effort. So the ends justify it. Right? 🙂
