Alu Methi


1 bunch fresh methi - cleaned and chopped roughly
2 medium potatoes - cut into small cubes
1 medium onion - chopped
4 cloved garlic - crsuhed & chopped
2 green chillis - cut lenghtwise
1 teaspoon dhania jeera powder
1 teaspoon jeera/cumin seeds
2 tablespoons oil
a pinch of turmeric - optional
salt to taste


In a karahi add the oil. When it gets hot add the jeera/cumin to it and let it splutter (be careful not to burn it). Then add the chillis and garlic and saute till the smell of roasted garlic comes out. Then add the onions and fry till they turn pinkish brown. To this add the cubed potatoes and turmeric and mix it well. Cover and cook till potatoes are half cooked. Now add the chopped methi to it along with the dhania jeera powder and a little salt. Mix well and cook covered till the potatoes are cooked, but rememeber to stir occassionally else the mixture could stick to the bottom of the karahi. Now add salt if needed and serve hot with chappatis or dal and rice.
