Methi Alu Sabji ( Fenugreek Potato )



Methi leaves are very healthy , but when preparing any dish with it , extra care needs to be taken as its bitter in taste and the dish may taste bitter if right spices are not added.
Here in this dish I am adding mango powder to reduce the bitterness of Methi leaves.





Preparation time: 10-15 mins

Cooking time : 10 mins

Ingredients
  • Methi leaves - 1 bunch ( chopped in small )
  • Potato -1  big chopped in cubes
  • Mango powder - 1 tspn
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tspn
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tspn
  • Dhaniya powder - 1/2 tspn
  • Turmeric - 1/4 tspn
  • Salt -1 tspn
  • Water - 150 ml
  • Oil - 3 tbspn
  • Cumin / mustard seeds - 1/2 tspn
 Steps :
  1.  In a small pressure cooker add oil and once its heated add mustard / cumin seeds.
  2. Then pressure cook for 1 whistle on medium low flame - Methi leaves , chopped Potato , water ( very little - approx 200 ml) , Spices & salt.
  3. Once after the cooker lid is opened, again heat it on medium high flame till all the water ( if any left ) is evaporated and the potatoe's turned little golden brown.
If not comfortable making in pressure cooker , than can make it in a Kadai also.

 Methi Alu is ready to be served with Roti!
