Aloo Methi

Methi Aloo Pic: Priya Q

As a kid I was a fussy eater. Eating greens voluntarily was out of question but still my all time favorite was Aloo Methi 🙂


Potato (aloo) – 4-5 nos (diced)

Fresh Fenugreek leaves (Methi) – 3 cups (washed and chopped)

Turmeric powder – 1 tsp

Chilli Powder – 2 tsp

Dry Mango Powder (aamchur) – 1/2 tsp

Oil – 4 tbsp

Salt to taste


  1. Heat oil in a pan and tip in potatoes and methi leave. Don’t stir as yet
  2. Add turmeric and chilli powder. Close vessel without stirring
  3. After few minutes give it a nice stir and add salt. Close lid and cook on medium flame
  4. When the potatoes are almost done sprinkle dry mango powder(aamchur) and mix well
  5. Serve with Indian bread / rice and dal


till next time….happy cooking! 🙂
