Aloo Methi Subji: A healthy Recipe

Aloo methi subji is made using aloo (potatoes) and methi leaves (also called fenugreek). An amazing observation made here is that the time to sort leaves is much more than cooking it and getting done with it.

  • Iron Kadai
  • Colander


  • 250 gm fenugreek leaves (unsorted) methi leaves
  • 2 medium potato
  • 1 tsp haldi
  • 1.5 tsp red chilli can adjust
  • 1/2 tsp Heeng
  • 1 small green chilli optional
  • 1 tbsp mustard oil
  • salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp amchur optional


  • Gather the methi seeds. Chop them or use as is. Wash them thoroughly under running water. Take a potato and chop it in not-so thick slices.
  • Take an iron kadai and heat mustard oil till it changes its color from dark yellow to almost transparent color. Let it cool down to warm temperature. Dont add anything in hot mustard oil or it might hurt.
    Add spices and immediately add methi leaves and potato (or else spices might burn). Add green chillies, salt and mix well. Cover it with lid.
  • Slowly methi would leave water and shrink too. Keep sauteeing in between. Once all the water is absorbed and potatoes become soft, the veggie is ready. It takes about 5-10 min. Let it be covered for another 5 min after you switch off the flame.
  • Aloo Methi subji is ready. Serve it with paratha or chapati. Enjoy!
