Alo Methi

Alo Methi

I was really scared about how this dish will turn ou,t as Methi is famous for the bitter taste. However, the dish turned out quite well and was ready in a jiffy.

Potatoes - 4 (Medium sized, peeled,cubed and parboiled)
Methi Leaves - 3 (Small Bunches cleaned, washed and chopped)
Jeera- 1 Teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - Pinch
Asafoetida - Pinch
Chilly Powder - 1-11/2 tablespoon
Oil and Salt.


In a kadai add some oil and warm it up. Then add the Jeera and add the potatoes and cook for 2 minutes.
Then add the Methi leaves and give a stir and put the lid on and cook for 2 minutes.
Then add turmeric,chilly powder,asafoetida,salt and give a mix.
Then put the lid on and cook for 7-8 minutes. Keep checking on for every 1 minute while cooking.


  • You can make it as a gravy by adding some water.
  • You can add onion before adding the potatoes.
  • If you dont have fresh methi, dried methi leaves can also be sued for this recipe.
