aloo methi recipealoo methi recipe | alu methi recipe | how to make dry aloo methi curry with step by step photo and video recipe. aloo based curries are quite popular across india and can be seen heavily used in both south and north. it can be used as hero ingredient with a curry base, or perhaps as side ingredient with other vegetables. aloo methi is one such potato based dry variant curry mainly served with roti & chapati.

i have posted quite a few dry variants of indian sabzi recipes, but aloo methi recipe is very unique with its flavour and taste. this is because of the fresh fenugreek leaves which add the bitterness or i would say a unique taste to the curry. as a matter of fact, the same recipe can also be prepared with dry fenugreek leaves or methi leaves. but i personally like the fresh green leaves for this dry sabzi. further, i even experiment with this recipe and i make it as a gravy based recipe. the only disadvantage with the gravy based alu methi recipe is, the flavour of methi leaves get diluted and not effective as a dry variant. hence i thought of sharing this dry aloo methi curry and perhaps later the gravy based one.

furthermore, some easy and important tips and recommendations for aloo methi recipe. firstly, the recipe tastes great when the medium-sized potato cubes are fried in oil instead of pressure cooking it together. if you are running late or busy then go with the pressure cooking of potatoes separately and use it in the curry. secondly, the same recipe can also be made with baby potatoes similar to dum aloo. you may have to pressure cook or deep fry the baby potatoes before using it. lastly, the same recipe can also be made with the combination of veggies. you can use, gobi, carrot, beans, peas and broccoli.
