Aloo Methi

This is another side dish I tried and got the recipe from Rak's Kitchen. I tried to follow the same recipe of hers except few changes I made to suit our taste. Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients:-
  1. Potato - 2 cups (chopped into cubes)
  2. Onion - 1
  3. Methi Leaves - 1 cup (wash it & finely chopped)
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. salt to taste
  6. Curry powder - 1 tsp (acc to taste)
  7. Oil - 2 tsp
  8. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  9. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  10. Green onion - 2 tsp (chopped for garnishing)
Put the chopped potato in a microwave safe bowl, add required amount of water and microwave it till its 3/4th done. In the mean time, preheat oil in a pan, splutter mustard and cumin seeds, add chopped onion and saute for few minutes till it becomes transparent. Now add the washed/chopped methi leaves and saute till it is fully cooked. Add turmeric powder, curry powder and salt at this time. Add the 3/4th cooked potato pieces, sprinkle 1/4 cup (or required amount) of water and cook till potato turns golden brown. Garnish it with chopped green onion and serve it with roti/chapathi or with rice.

Hi there,
North Indian sabzis like this one do not call for mustard seeds, only jeera is used. Adding mustard seeds to every curry is so typically the South-Indian way of doing it!
