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 Indian favourite deserves the global fame that it has earned! You will find that this recipe is made with everyday ingredients like ginger, garlic, cumin seeds 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.

Also try other subzi combos with methi like Methi Palak Paneer Subzi , Methi Papad and Methi Mutter Pasanda .
