Aloo Methi Dry


Greens are not on everybody’s favourite list. But when you know how to make it the right way, I bet nobody will be able to resist it.

let’s see how I do it here to make my family stick to the greens happily.


  • Methi ka saag/ fenugreek leaves- 1/2kg (thoroughly cleaned and chopped coarsely)
  • Potatoes                                           – Small 2-3, cut into cubes
  • Garlic                                                – peeled and chopped randomly
  • Chilies                                               -3-4 dried red chillies (as per your taste)
  • Asafoetida/Hing                              – 2-3 pinches
  • Mustard oil                                      – 5-6 tbs
  • salt                                                    – As required



  1. First of all, before starting the cooking, what we have to do is to take the chopped fenugreek leaves and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of salt on it, mix it well and keep aside for 10-15 minutes (this step takes out the bitterness in the fenugreek leaves and we won’t be fussy while eating)
  2. Now, we need to take a kadhai/ deep bottomed pan and put some mustard oil in it.
  3. Add the cubed potatoes and fry it till it turns slightly golden brown and keeps it aside.
  4. Go on and add dry red chillies, chopped garlic and saute it till the garlic turned light brown.
  5. Meanwhile, take the salt coated/marinated fenugreek leaves and squeeze it to take out the water from it.
  6. Now add the methi saag or fenugreek leaves into the kadhai along with golden fried potatoes.
  7. Furthermore, sprinkle some salt and saute it well.
  8. Allow it to cook thoroughly till the leaves are wilted. (this should take around 15 minutes)
  9. Finally, add some asafoetida giving it a final mix and serve it with hot parathas, chapattis or rice and daal, and you are good to go.

Eat healthily.

Bon Appetite!!
