Making of Aloo Methi

  • When the Potatoes are cooked,  add salt, chopped methi leaves and  coriander powder and mix well
  • Keep in low flame for 5 minutes. Finally add crushed Kasoori Methi and stir once and then switch off the flame.
  • The yummy Aloo Methi is ready to serve hot with Chapatis/Rotis


  • To get rid of the bitterness of the methi leaves, we can sprinkle little salt and leave it aside for 30 minutes before using methi leaves
  • Do not over cook the potatoes. The potatoes should be cooked completely at the same time it should not smash
  • If you need more masala taste, we can add 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala. I  prefer less masala in aloo methi so i have added only broken chillies
