  • 1 tsp green chillies, finely chopped

  • ½ tsp haldi
  • ¼   tsp hing/asafoetida

  • Salt to taste

  • Wash the fenugreek leaves and chop them finely.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. Let them crackle.

  • Add the potatoes and stir add salt mix well and cook covered for about 5 minutes till potatoes are almost done.

  1. I like the methi flavor very popular combination nice choice...

  2. It is hard to exactly replicate the simplest of recipes. We just do our best, right?

  3. Absolutely love it, Archana. Aloo methi is one of my favorite side dishes. :)

  4. I make this often.. Very tasty.. Your's looks very delicious.

  5. Wonderful looking aloo methi, usually i'll go for less fenugreek leaves, this sounds very prefect for me.

  6. Such an flavorful and tempting sabzi :) I can finish it all with hot chapathis !!

  7. Love the combo of aloo and methi, Archana!

  8. i love this combo..methi aaloo and make it regularly in winters.a real healthy green.

  9. Love this combo -- classic & delicious.

  10. Sometimes a dish we try out doesn't match up to the one in our memory. Happens esp when the memory is associated with someone we love.

  11. I love this combo and as you say we can never match our mom's cooking..

  12. Love this aloo methi combo...looks very inviting archana
