  • 2 Fresh chilies
    Asafoetida (hing powder).

  • Salt.
  • 1 tsp Ginger garlic paste.

  • Heat up a pan.

  • Add 1.1/2 tsp dhaniya powder
  • Let masalas get cooked as they will give a nice aroma to aloo methi sabjee.
  • Add some salt

TIP: If you find methi leaves bitter, then while washing methi in the beginning, you could wash in salted water to take away its bitterness.

  • Let methi get cooked for 4-5 minutes.
  • Now add the fried potatoes and mix well.
  • Cover the lead and let it cook for 5 minutes, no extra water needed.
  • Your Aloo Methi.
