Easy Methi Aloo Fry/ Sauteed Potato And Fenugreek Leaves

Easy Methi Aloo/ Sauteed Potato And Fenugreek Greens

Methi Aloo is an easy and healthy dish which is taken as main dish or as sides. I have prepared this dish in exactly 5 minutes cooking time. I have some boiled potatoes which saved my time.

This is a smart way to fast cooking. I always keep some boiled potatoes in my fridge which are life savers in hurry. But in case you don’t have boiled potatoes, then also you can make this dry sauteed methi aloo for 2 – 4 servings in 15 – 20 minutes.

When you have spare time just clean the leaves from the stems and store in a airtight fridge box or poly bag in refrigerator. At time of cooking just wash them and chop. Most of the time we hesitate making such leafy vegetable with an excuse that it takes long to clean.

So lets cook smart with some more easier technics. One more such smart idea is my ready to eat curry paste. Read the recipe here!

This will fasten the process by releasing water which will help in cooking faster. If using boiled potato then saute for 1 minute on medium to high flame.
