Dry Curry, Sizzling Tastebuds

Sukha Aloo Methi | Potato and Fenugreek leaves stir fry | Vegan and GF

In the final post using Potato this week, today we have the evergreen Aloo Methi (potato and fenugreek leaves) stir fry. Its probably a combo that steals hearts across regions and age groups,and therefore made in a zillion ways. I love the way my mom makes it, and thats captured in this post today.

Makes an excellent side dish for Hot rotis / Dal + rice or even curd rice. If I (and if I ever) have leftovers, which is a rarity, I use it as a filling for parathas the next day, and that tastes awesome as well 🙂
