Aloo Methi

on November 30, 2014

As usual, It was a lazy weekend, And I was lazing around the whole time, But what to prepare for lunch was a major question 😛 Was no in no mood to go to the supermarket. A quick glance through the pantry, and there, some potatoes and methi leaves !! Started scanning through the recipes in google, and found this quick recipe. Also there was a theme in the food group which i follow in FB and found this apt for that theme 😀

This one’s a very yummy and quick recipe,  However I didn’t add too much of methi leaves as my hubby would not eat it then, and altered the spices according to my taste.


  • Potatoes : 4 medium (Cubed)
  • Onion : 2 (Sliced)
  • Sambar powder : 3 tsp
  • Chilli powder : 1 tsp
  • Lemon : 1
  • Olive oil : 1 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds : 1tsp
  • Methi leaves : 1 cup (roughly chopped)
  • Salt to taste


  • Soak the methi leaves in salt water for about 10 min to remove the excess bitter taste
  • Cut potatoes into cubes and apply a tsp of salt and set it aside for 5 min
  • Heat oil in a pan, Add the cumin seeds, Once its splutters, add in the sliced onions and fry until slight goldent brown
  • Now add the potatoes and keep tossing until its 3/4th done.
  • Add the sambar, chilli powders and salt, mix well.
  • Next, add the methi leaves and cook until the potatoes are done.
  • Switch off the gas, Squeeze a lime and toss. Serve hot as a side dish with Dal and rice or with some phulkas.
