Come winter and the market will be bursting with fresh vegetables, especially the greens. So when I found these beautiful Fenugreek leaves, I knew I had to buy it. I hail from South India and we do not use these leaves at all in our food. In fact, if I tell my Mom that I made this dish of Potatoes stir fried with Fenugreek leaves, she would be bewildered for sure. “Isn’t that bitter?”, she would say in open-mouthed astonishment but Aloo Methi is anything but that.
Aloo Methi is a delicious dry dish where in potatoes are sauted with fenugreek leaves and spices. Fenugreek leaves are light green in color, have a distinct sweet smell and is a little bitter in taste. They are healthy and is packed with nutrients. To remove the bitterness, wash the leaves well, sprinkle salt and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
We all love recipes that are simple and for everyday meal. This is one of them. Aloo Methi is an everyday dish for it is easy to make and with everyday ingredients. The softness of potatoes and the light yet pleasing bitterness of Fenugreek makes the dish quite exotic.
The rich aroma and flavor is guaranteed and it is great as a side dish to Phulka Rotis and rice. The recipe is quick and in under 20 minutes you can make a nutritious and flavorful dish.
This Sabzi when combined with mild spices, makes it delectable to the palate.
Last day, I announced on my Facebook Page about #NaBloPoMo. Well, this November, I am participating in the Daily Blogging Challenge #NaBloPoMo hosted by BlogHer. I know it is madness to even think of enrolling a food blog in such a challenge but yes, I am known for my impulsiveness.
I hope I stick to this and that you get to see some fantastic dishes in this space after a month of hibernation. There will be recipes from all forte – soups, starters, greens, rice, desserts. You name it. We’ll have it here. So, keep supporting and help spread the word.
