Aloo Methi Masala!!!

Hi guys!!!

Aloo methi masala is a dry subji that goes well with rotis. My husband generally does not like dry subjis but he absolutely loves this one. Why wouldn't he??!! Its made with potatoes!!! This is a very easy dish and can be prepared on days when time is less yet you do not wanna compromise on a tasty meal.

Generally this dish is prepared with fresh methi leaves. Due to the difficulty in finding fresh leaves, I had to resort to Kasoori methi. The dish was still good.

Now lets see the recipe.


Potatoes - 3 large
Onion - 1
Garlic - 3 cloves
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Kasoori methi - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 1 tbsp


1. Boil the potatoes and dice them into small cubes and set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a kadai and add the cumin seeds and let them splutter. Then add the chopped onion and garlic and cook till it turns soft.
3. Now add all the masala powders, kasoori methi, salt and sprinkle some water and mix well.
4. Add the cubed potatoes and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle some water to enable even coating of the masala.
5. Cook for about 5 mins and switch off heat.

Serve hot with rotis!!!
