Enjoying the monsoon rains with my Aloo-Methi and garam garam puries.......

Monsoon rains have started at last in our city too and people are happy that rains are finally here.Ah what a nostalgia ...getting drenched in the first rain of the season!
   Today after so many days i am enjoying my puries with this simple yet tasty dish.This dish is quite famous in north- India but now it is also enjoyed by south -Indians.This dish is very easy and very aromatic.I just love the smell of the fenugreek leaves which makes a great combo with potato.

Fenugreek leaves-2cups (chopped0
Potato-4(thinly sliced)
Garlic-2-3 cloves crushed(optional)
Green chilly-2 chopped
Turmeric-a pinch
Salt to taste


  • Cut potatoes into thin square pieces.Apply salt and keep aside for 10-15 mins.
  • Wash and clean the methi leaves and finely chop.Strain the excess water.
  • Now take a kadai or pan and heat a table spoon of oil.
  • In that add cumin and let it crakle, immediately add crushed garlic and chopped green chillies and saute for a second.
  • Add a pinch of turmeric followed by methi leaves and a pinch of salt ( as we have added little salt to potatoes so be careful while adding salt )   .Saute for 5 mins or until its almost dry.
  • Now squeeze the potatoes and  drain off the the excess water and mix this with methi leaves and fry for a second.
  • Now sprinkle some watere and close it with a lid and let it cook for 5mins on low flame.
  • Now open the lid check for the seasoning and stir till  the dish is almost dry.
  • Switch off the gas and serve hot with roti or puri.
