Aloo- methi

Winter is near, and vegetable stores are now full with fresh and green vegetable . I love this season b'coz it provide many option to people like me, who loves to prepare different kind of food every time. I came to see fresh fenugreek leaves(Methi) at store alst week and it was so fresh that i could not resist to buy it. As my hubby don't like little bitter taste of it, I decided to try it some other way. Here is how I made it with potato and one tomato in it. As just one tomato in it will change the whole bitterness of fenugreek into wonderful taste for this main course.


2 medium sized potato cut into small cubes,
1 bunch of fenugreek leaves, cut and washed thoroughly ,
1 medium sized tomato,
3-4 flacks garlic -crushed,
½ tsp Cumin seeds,
¼ tsp mustard seeds,
¼ tsp turmeric powder,
½ tsp red chili powder,
Salt to taste
1 tsp oil,

Heat oil in a pan or kadhai and then add mustard seeds & cumin seeds. Add crushed garlic . When garlic turn little golden add potato cubes. cook it for 3-4 mins until it is tender. Next add turmeric powder to it and fenugreek leaves. Fenugreek leaves doesnt take much time to cook , just let it cook for 1-2 mins and then add tomato pieces to it. Mix it well with the all ingredients and finally add red chili powder. serve hot with chapati or roti.

It is very simple to make yet tasty. I love it coz it takes even less time to cook. :)
