Aloo Methi/ Potato with fenugreek leaves

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Yesterday, i made potato fry along with rasam n spinach dal for lunch n dinner. We had gone out for dinner, leaving me with leftovers. So for today's lunch i thought of making broccoli fry. But when i search my fridge, i came across this frozen methi n imm i got an idea of making aloo methi....  As methi has bitter taste by nature, it made me little bit worry abt the curry. If it is fresh methi we can cook it as usual. But, i got this frozen methi n when i tasted it,it was so bitter. So, i tried the process we use for cooking bitter gourd..

So here is the recipe for delicious aloo methi ,
