Aloo Methi

Potatoes and Fenugreek Leaves Stir Fry


This is a simple North Indian dish which I make often for dinner. It goes well with rotis. Delicious Aloo Methi can also be served as a side dish for rice.

No power is needed in cooking healthy and nutritious Aloo Methi! Hence I am sending this to the 'Power'less Cooking Event being hosted by easycrafts.

Ingredients:

Potatoes -3 medium cubed
Fenugreek leaves (methi) -1 bunch chopped
Tomato -1 chopped
Onion -1 chopped
Chilli powder -1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1\4 tsp
Salt -to taste
Oil -2 tbsp

Method
:

Heat oil in a non stick pan. Fry onions till they turn pink. Add chilli powder and turmeric powder. Fry for a few seconds and add tomatoes. Fry for a minute and add the potatoes, fenugreek leaves and salt. Mix well and cover it with a lid. Keep on a low flame and cook till the potatoes are soft. Stir occasionally. Do not add any water. Open the lid and fry for two minutes. Serve with rotis or rice.
