Aloo Methi is an everyday recipe... easy, tasty and awesome. Yet, every time you taste it, it feels exotic, with the softness of potatoes and the pleasing bitterness of methi. Indeed, this Punjabi favourite deserves the global fame that it has earned! You will find that this recipe is made with everyday ingredients like ginger, garlic, jeera and red chillies, yet it has a rich aroma and flavour that makes you eat an extra chapati or two. Cooking the potatoes for so long makes them a little crisp and gives them an appetising brownish colour. It also allows the potatoes to imbibe the flavours of the garlic, green chillies and ginger really well. Serve this tasty Aloo Methi with rotis and parathas.

Aloo Methi ( Punjabi Recipe)

Two things that make this recipe extra special: a. roasted and breaking the red chillies. b. This one can easily miss everyone - salting the methi and squeezing out the water. Very very rarely does someone get the methi alu recipe right, and the reason they go weong is in not removing the methi moisture. If not done, when you add it to the aloo, it happily lets out close to 3/4 cup of water and the methis gets a boiled taste and the aloo is beyond recognition. Today I discovered the secret . Really happy! (and I have been cooking for 30 years :), so imagine how a simple truth can miss you!
